My story

[p]Hi all. [/p][p]As you all know I'm not the fittest person on earth and hate daily exercise so I'm challenging myself to be more active during these unprecedented times by setting myself a challenge to walk up my stairs (communal) *18 steps* 124 times a day for 26 days (extra 2 sets on the last day) starting 11th May 2020. I know it doesn't sound a lot but that equates to 3226 flights / 58,068 steps. The height of Mount Everest![/p][p]Why?[/p][p]Well quite simply I want to demonstrate the uphill struggle LGBT+ people go through, some their whole lives, just to survive or "fit in". How being themselves is an uphill battle both internally and externally and that sometimes we have to go down in order to come up. By doing this I hope to share just some of the continued effort individuals face just to get through life. I'm doing this for 26 days, they do it for their entire lives.[/p][p]Why now? [/p][p]It may seem a strange time to do something like this, whilst the world is challenging a pandemic and people are worried about frontline workers etc. However, I feel it is important to recognise that during these uncertain times, during lockdown, where people are isolated in their homes. It's important to remember that we are asking vulnerable people, that may be in abusive situations, because of there sexuality or identity, living with unsupportive parents or unaccepting family members, or isolated and lonely, to stay in! Hide! and/or not be themselves! during this pandemic. That will lead to further suffering of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety on top of their already stressful life's increasing the risk of self-harm and suicide amongst the most vulnerable in our community. It is VITAL that we tell them, we understand how difficult this is, and will be there for them when and where we can, that there is a future of love and hope and that despite feeling lonely they are not alone.[/p][p]My target is to raise 50p for every flight. If you can help towards that I would be eternally grateful. All money raised for this campaign will go directly towards Four Pillars, the local LGBT+ Charity supporting health and wellbeing for all. To read more about Four Pillars visit their website www.forupillarsuk.org or follow on Facebook.[/p][p]If you are feeling brave you can join in, walk up and down your stairs (it doesn't have to be 100 times or for 26 days, you decide!) whilst in lockdown and help raise money towards LGBT health and wellbeing, or complete your fundraiser for the greater good and donate to all 2.6 challenge charities. Simply follow the instructions on twopointsixchallenge.co.uk[/p][p][br][/p]
