Movember is the month for hairy faces as men put their shavers down and grow their moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues – prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide.
A dad from Moorside Rangers Junior Club in Swinton Manchester, Jack Eckersley has set himself a different challenge. Running 5k, a day, for the month of November to raise funds to support mental health awareness.
Friends and family have joined Jack to support him reach his target. His biggest supporter, son Ollie, 7 has been on a few runs encouraging his dad to meet his goal of 150k. Said Jack, “I wanted to do something for the money I raised. What better way to get fit and raise awareness about mental health at such difficult times”.
Stay at home restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19 has seen the rise of mental health problems and suicide rates.
