What is SUP 3SIX5?
Well, as the title suggests I am going to Stand Up Paddleboard for 365 days from 1st November 2020 to raise awareness for Mental Health in Sport.
Advocating the benefits of exercise in any form, to all; I will be paddling for the charity MIND, who provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding about Mental Health.
My dark days and daily grind will be enlightened by a feeling that I can reach out and inspire people to get out and try something new, SUP or just get out and maybe even get wet.
If that’s not for you then maybe just support people in a difficult world, especially now!
I will be dropping daily post’s on instagram @SUP3SIX5 and FaceBook, so you will know where I’ll be, keep track of my progress and future plans.
Feel free to join me, share with me or donate below.
See you out there!
