Extreme Challengers at the Margaret River Ultra Marathon
We are extremely excited to have Extreme Challengers Tom Scott and Josh Burke running on behalf of ONE IN FIVE in Rapid Ascent’s Margaret River Ultra Marathon. On the 4th of May, they will be pairing up to tackle the 80km trail run to once again rekindle the conversation of mental illness, and raise money towards fighting the various diseases.
For Josh and myself, mental illness (depression in particular) is a weight that has been worn by the majority – and taken the lives of too many – in the tight-knit community of South Western Australia.
In a region where everybody is your neighbour and most are your friends, receiving word that somebody in the community is suffering from a mental illness impacts not the just the family and close friends of the person – but a whole corner of Western Australia.
In order to once again rekindle the conversation of mental illness, and raise money towards fighting the various diseases, my good mate Josh and myself are teaming up to tackle the 80km Margaret River Ultra Marathon on the 4th of May.
Help them meet their goal of $1500, support them now on their Everyday Hero page!
