Launch Event EXCEEDS our expectations – Thank you
28 June 2021
For the foundation’s launch event Charlie’s Army had huge plans, huge expectations and at the time we didn’t know if they could be met. Our target was to complete 5,691 miles for each life lost to suicide in 2019, however from the 23rd May – 23 June a total of 13,782 miles were completed.
We asked those who wished to, to join our group on Strava and we were absolutely blown away with the results. You walked, ran, swam, biked and golfed your way throughout the month. The event became so much more than the miles. With people getting in touch to express a notable change in their overall mental health and wellbeing all by changing a simple daily habit and making it part of their routine.
We also raised over £20,000 for the event’s chosen charities. They were charities that Charlie actively supported throughout his life. SASH & York Mind
