The mini triathlon which consisted of a 5K treadmill, 5K bike and 5K on the rower, took place in the Manor House Hotel and Killyhevlin Hotel, Fermanagh. Craig also ran a raffle, well done to the winners: 1st Sally Rees & 2nd Nigel Glover. Craig would like to thank everyone who took part & helped him to raise awareness of mental health!!!
Thank you very much Craig!!! We deeply appreciate your donation & support! #TakingActionOnMentalHealth
Read Craig’s story below:
“In memory of my beautiful wife Edyta, I have organised a fundraising event to raise awareness of Mental Health Illness and hopefully reduce the stigma associated with it.
With physical activity being one of the best ways to combat the symptoms of many mental health illnesses, I wanted to arrange an event that would encourage this. The EDYTATHLON consists of three CV exercises (Treadmill, Bike & Rower), with each participant trying to complete a total of 15k (Ideally 5k on each). However, as the primary goal of the EDYTATHLON is to increase physical activity and improve the self-esteem / motivation levels of people who don’t get regular exercise, I want to include as many people as possible. Therefore, this 15k can be completed in a single day or accumulated throughout the week, and may also be completed on one, two or three CV exercises”
