Suicide is the biggest killer of under 35's in the UK.
Papyrus is an incredible charity that is working to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.
THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD CHALLENGE
Many of the young people or others concerned about a young person feel like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders when they are struggling with thoughts of suicide.
Our challenge will see the JAE community raise vital awareness and funds for PAPYRUS by challenging themselves to physically feel the weight – the weight of our tyre! You can even get your friends and family to add to your fundraising through your own dedicated web link once you’re signed up!
Each competitor will hold the tyre at arm’s length for as long as they can. Times will be recorded and entered onto our leader board, with the lucky champion winning one of our amazing prizes, that have kindly been donated from sponsors and traders including Holden Honda, Millhouse Tools, Kanji Collective and also Autogenic, who will give the winner a free photoshoot on site of their car! There are loads of runners up prizes up for grabs too!
