FUNDRAISER EVENTS ROUND UP

We are constantly amazed and humbled by the amount of lovely folk who take on a whole range of remarkable endeavours to raise money for CALM.  From sky dives, to live gigs, the list is ever growing, so below are a selection of upcoming fundraising events happening across the country.  

Our support from the public has tripled in the past year, and has meant that we now have the means to expand our helpline service to 7 days a week.  YOU did that, and we cannot tell you how grateful we are.  With continued support we can eventually expand nationwide.  We’re a way off yet, but nothing’s impossible!!

If you are taking part or hosting an event in aid of CALM please let us know the details on info@thecalmzone.net and we can help to raise awareness.

Enormous thanks to you all.  Together we can SAVE THE MALE!

Jul 14th – British 10k London Run

We saw an unprecedented 100 runners pound the streets of London for CALM in the British 10k London run 2012 and hope to get even more people involved this year.  A fantastic route taking you past some of London’s most iconic landmarks, this 10k is like no other in the UK.  From elite runners to people in chicken suits, everyone is welcome to take part in what is always a brilliant day for both participants and supporters. We have places available in this year’s race, so if you would like to take part and run for CALM, please email info@thecalmzone.net for more details.

Aug 3rd – ‘Serious Drugs’ Film Screening and Q&A

Jim Burns is a film maker who has struggled with depression throughout his life, but found solace in the music of early indie underdogs, BMX Bandits.  Cited as an influence by Kurt Cobain, and having been supported by Oasis in the early nineties, ‘Serious Drugs’ follows BMX Bandits frontman Duglas T Stewart and touches on both his struggles and those of Burns.  ‘Serious Drugs’ will be screened followed by a Q & A session with director Jim Burns, live sets from Lenzie Moss and  Nick Garrie plus DJ sets from Cineplexx and the Idle Fret DJs .  Entry is FREE, with donations to CALM welcome!

  2. Hi

    Thanks for getting in touch and helping raise money for CALM!
    We don’t have any spots in the London Marathon, i’m afraid, but we do have places in the Nike London 10k in July. We don’t tend to buy places for the big running events, but people do often enter independently and then raise money for us that way. Alternatively, if there is a particular event you would be interested in taking part in for us, please let us know and we can see what we can arrange in terms of places. Some more events coming up that you might want to get involved in are the Tough Mudder Challenge in May or the Tour De Test Valley cycle sportive in September. For more information, please email info@thecalmzone.net
