It is a fundraiser to take place during Men’s Health Awareness Week from 14th to 20th June 2021. The key aims of the challenge are as follows;

1.     Raise awareness of mens health, the impact such things as; Toxic Masculinity, is having on males of all ages and the over 385 men who die through suicide every month in this country. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the work of every men’s support group around the UK, who work tirelessly to provide assistance for men of all ages, coming together to share stories and support one another.

 

2.     Encourage people around the country to take on their own #385challenge, such as walking, running, swimming, press-ups or jumps, any physical activity which can be completed as an individual or a group of people which adds up to 385 and help raise money for their own charity OR Talk Mental Health.

 

It is the appropriate time to show our support to those charities/social enterprises, who have kept our communities going throughout the pandemic, whilst losing £millions due to lack of donations and fundraisers.
