My story

[p]Last year, Typhoon squadron together with so many friends and family did something amazing. In memory of their comrade Ben Brown, they all made the journey to Istanbul and back to raise awareness for important issues and to raise money for frontline charities.[/p][p][br][/p][p]One year on, they are doing something similar in Ben’s memory, and they need your help. Ben fell in love with Bangkok a few years ago when he visited, so this year they are going to Bangkok! One team led by Typhoon, running and walking 11,765km across Europe and Asia (virtually of course).[/p][p][br][/p][p]Once again, we will be raising awareness of the issues that matter to us. Young suicide is still a major issue. Neurodiversity is still misunderstood. Mental Health is still hidden. Help us break down barriers. Spread our messages. Contribute to our fundraising. And if you feel up for it, run or walk with us to Bangkok.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our charity partners are [url=]Papyrus[/url], [url=]CALM[/url] and [url=]Shout[/url].[/p][p][br][/p][p]For many of us, this will be a way to cope with some difficult anniversaries and for that reason we will start the challenge on Ben’s Birthday, April 2nd, and complete the challenge by April 27th, the anniversary of Ben leaving us. Your support will drive the team on. Please do what you can to support these important charities.[/p][p][br][/p][p]With the end of lockdown finally in sight, this is a chance to walk and run ourselves into a better future. A future that we will have all made a small difference to. There will be many suffering with their mental health as the changing world emerges. Many people with suicidal thoughts. We want to support the charities that are facing these issues head on. Join us.[/p]

Thinking of Ben, especially today. Happy to donate in memory of Ben to these charities who help so many people with their mental health. May Ben's memory live on and may mental health be talked about more openly! You will forever be missed Ben!
