State of Mind supporter Phill Jukes has begun their 40/120 Challenge on Monday 10th May to mark the beginning of Mental Health awareness week

The 40/120 challenge highlights the number of people every year who take their own life around the world. 800,000 people around the world take their own life or one person every 40 seconds and 120 deaths in every 80 minutes rugby match played.

You can try your own version of the 40/120 Challenge in any way that suits your ability so 40 steps around the garden in 120 minutes or 40 times up and down stairs in 120 minutes or any version that works for you.

Phill is a Crew Manager in the Fire Service, Rugby Union Referee for @DurhamRefsoc and a former rugby union player

Phill said “I set myself a challenge to help raise awareness of Mental Health running 40 miles in 5 days (120 hours) 10th-14th May in Mental Health awareness week so any donations will help and be greatly appreciated Thank you

State of Mind would like to thank Phill for his time and efforts and good luck!!!
