Yesterday over 25,000 people hit the roads of Central London in the British 10k, 114 of whom were lighting up the streets in their neon orange CALM vests, collectively raising over £20,000 to help CALM prevent male suicide. That will fund up to 4,000 calls to our helpline. Each one of those calls could potentially save a life. That’s an amazing achievement. Thank you.
With a route taking in iconic London landmarks such as St Pauls Cathedral and Houses of Parliament, and with a few cloudbursts along the way, it was an epic effort by everyone involved, and an utterly inspirational and uplifting day for all. A special shout out goes to one CALM runner, Jack Semmence, who came 52nd out of 25,000 runners. Remarkable stuff! Watch your back, Mo!
We cannot thank you all enough for your incredible support – we could not be more proud to be represented by such a brilliant bunch of people. To illustrate just how awesome you all were, here’s the photographic evidence and see you all next year!
