What a beautiful opportunity to sit down with Corey Choat the man behind @runningforsal
Such a honour to have Corey share the story about his sisters struggle with mental health and her passing. What the family went through, experience with the system and the inevitable heartbreak. This has prompted Corey to raise awareness around Mental Health via running and doing other events. He will be running a minute for everyone whom passed away in 2021 via suicide on the 10th December 2022 at the Whangamata Rugby Club.
We share our insights on being connected and remaining connected. How physical exercise has helpped us both to adjust our own mindset and address sorrow, pain and mental fatigue.
We share some love around a huge number of wickedly positive sites doing such great work in raising wareness around Mental Health, Mental Fitness and Mental Wellness - IAMHOPE; MENTALLNZ; FORALLTHEBROTHERS; HENDOSHOTTOPICS; BETTERTHANBEFORE; IGOTYOU and so many more.
Jump on his page and donate what you can on his givealittle page….but give this a listen share it and help us all continue to raise awareness around this social health pandemic that effects so many innocent souls.
Thank you Corey for sharing with us all.
