IN MEMORY OF FALLEN FRIENDS & SUPPORT OF CHARITY CALM
"I AM AN UNDERDOG, TAKING ON SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE."
THE ULTIMATE TEST OF MENTAL & PHYSICAL ENDURANCE
LARGEST ULTRA TRIATHLON ATTEMPT IN THE UK
Every week, 125 people in the UK take their own lives. 75% of all UK suicides are male. Frankie (Co-founder Louis Brother) will be taking on the ultimate test of endurance, stamina and strength by completing the UK’s first ultra-triathlon. He hopes that his journey of effort, mindset, suffering, belief and sacrifice for a higher purpose will encourage those unknown individuals who may be struggling in silence to continue to fight their own battles. By signposting the charity – CALM and raising funds, Frankie’s hope that this event will encourage these individuals to speak out in order to get the help and support that they very much need.
