Hello World and welcome to 25twoZERO!
The 25twoZERO Movement was started when Shay Hare, a Mentor at the non-profit organisation Mentoring Men, was moved to take action by the suicide of a co-worker.
Shay says the purpose of this movement is “to shatter the stigma around mental health in males. I want to encourage males to get more candid and vulnerable in the way they talk to one another around their mental health. To actually talk about their problems before they become real problems.
Shay set himself the goal to run 2,520 km this year. Each kilometre represents every male that loses their battle each year. Shay’s campaign goal is to increase awareness, change the way males talk about their mental health and raise funds to help reduce the number of men in crisis from over 2,500 to ZERO. The funds raised will go towards Mentoring Men, an Australian organisation that supports men in their life journey with a free one-to-one life mentoring program. The program actively improves and saves lives by fostering healthy mindsets and behavioural choices.
Join the movement and help make a difference!
