Mental Health Awareness Week
Each year the Jonas Software group supports a chosen charity and all the companies in the group get organising, having fun and doing fantastic things to raise money. Last year, the group raised over £25k for The Pituitary Foundation.
This year the charity is CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably, leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths every day. To learn more about the charity’s work, visit the CALM website
Because of the lockdown, we’re having to be a bit more creative about how we can support CALM and as we enter Mental Health Awareness week, we’d like to give you an update on some great fundraising activities we are launching.
The 6,570km challenge
Sadly, every year, 6,570 lives will be lost to suicide. Starting today until the end of September, our team are going to be jogging, cycling and walking one km for every life.
