This month, Ben Hirst completed a gruelling 48 hour run on a treadmill, raising over $8,500 for our charity.

He was surrounded by family, friends and people who just simply admired his achievement. Ben first made contact with Stay ChatTY a few years ago, sharing his own past mental health demons and expressing his passion for helping us break the stigma surrounding mental health.

For two years now Ben has been a Stay ChatTY ambassador. He helps us to raise awareness and has raised funds for us along the way. We are extremely honoured to have Ben on board with us, he is a “treadmill warrior” and a mental health advocate who is determined to save lives.

Thank you to those who donated, to All Aerobics Fitness for the use of their space and equipment and to Ben and his family for all that you’ve done and continue to do for Stay ChatTY.
