Grassroots Suicide Prevention has partnered with 2XU, the Brighton Marathon Weekend Sports Apparel partner. 2XU want to create a fitter and healthier world both physically and mentally. In 2022, they are helping to raise awareness and funds for Grassroots Suicide Prevention.
On Saturday 26th February, we kicked off the collaboration in style! We welcomed runners raising money for Grassroots Suicide Prevention to Brighton seafront for a training run. 2XU ambassador Luke Tyburski also inspired our runners by sharing his experiences of ultra-endurance events and struggles with mental health. 2XU are donating 5% of all sales through the Brighton Marathon discount code. They’re also providing a special co-branded running shirt for all Grassroots Suicide Prevention Brighton Marathon runners this year.
The collaboration is a fantastic opportunity to help the Grassroots Suicide Prevention runners share their inspirational stories and raise much needed funds.
Here’s what Michael, Head of Fundraising has to say about why the Grassroots Runners are so important to keeping people safe:
