My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Mental health and suicide prevention

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men's health, and this Movember I'm joining them. Together we can make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Help me stop men dying too young.

Me personally, I've been very fortunate with my mental health for majority of the time with of course my fair share of highs and lows. I understand each new day presents an opportunity to nurture and grow the space we occupy in our minds. I've also been super lucky to have not lost any mates or family members to suicide or mental health struggles and will hope to keep it this way.
However, to do this a preventative approach must be implemented and awareness must be raised.

I know a few brave individuals who have held great courage and shared their personal struggles and asked for help before it was to late. Assisting others with knowing help is available and that you are not alone. This lead me to thinking of how I can help and play my part.

Running for me is incredible for clearing the mind and staying on top of my mental health. The endorphins released from a successful run naturally help relive stress and pain, leaving you feel content and strong. Being relatively new to consistent running I am still discovering the incredible benefits of it.

In week 8 of my marathon training I came to the realisation that I had an unmissable opportunity to raise awareness and funds for a vital cause while I tackle not only a physical challenge, but a mental challenge as well.

Running an ultra-marathon of 50km.

Originally it was only going to be a full marathon (42km) however, I have decided to run 50km and push myself to really help encourage all who come across this space to give generously to such a worthy cause or inspire them to get moving and improve their own physical and mental health. Even if all you can give is $10, then that is $10 more to a cause that needs our help. I'm kicking it off with $200, let's see what we can achieve together!

You can follow my running journey on Strava @sammclachlan or on Instagram @sammmclachlan.

Thankyou so much for your support!

Hey Sam, just wanted to send you a note to say CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU – you’re absolutely smashing it so far! You’ve now hit Movember’s Platinum Club by raising $1500. That is such a huge effort and will really help us change the face of men’s health. A big thanks to you and those who have rallied behind you so far. We’re on the home straight now, I hope you enjoy the rest of the hairy season.
