Cycle Around the Globe

Cycle Around the Globe - World Suicide Prevention Day 2018

10 September – 10 October, 2019


Join us in Cycling Around the Globe to raise awareness of the risks of suicide and to fund suicide prevention activities. We know that a person dies every 40 seconds by suicide and up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. There are also many more people who have been bereaved by suicide or have been close to someone who has made an attempt. This World Suicide Prevention Day event is about our global community: to encourage us to engage with each other and to join together to spread awareness of suicide prevention. This year, for the first time, the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) is partnering with Charity Footprints, the virtual race and wellness challenges platform.

THE CHALLENGE:
To collectively cycle the globe (40,075 km / 24,900 miles).

THE AIM:
Last year you helped us cycle a staggering 15.8 times around the globe! This year, we want to bring even more people together and cycle further.

THE PURPOSE:
To raise awareness of the risks of suicide and to fund essential
resources to support suicide prevention activities.

WHEN: 10 September – 10 October, 2019, although we will not exclude you if you cycle outside these dates. The more people who take part, the greater the awareness raised.

WHERE: Anywhere: at home, in the gym, on local roads, as part of a race, whilst on holiday…

COST: Nothing!! But we would love it if you would fundraise for us….
