On March 21st we woke and begun running from Burnie to Hobart for Tour de Tig 2. The reason these seven men run 360 kilometres over four days is simple, we wanted to break down the stigma that surrounds mental health.

All 7 of us have been touched by suicide. We know the devastation it brings, and we know the grief that it leaves you with.

Too many people take their own life because they don’t feel comfortable enough to turn to the person closest to them and open up about how they are feeling.

We had such great support along the way from people giving us a toot or people just a stopping for a chat, and Longford Football Club for feeding us. We thank everyone for their support.
