So...what’s a Trihealthlon? It's brand new!
We need you to help us by taking one of our three health challenges: Will you take it up, give it up, or change it up?
Could you walk part of the way to work each week, or swap chocolate snacks for carrot sticks? You can choose your own challenge, and it needn’t be a big thing, but we need you to stick to it for a month, and get your friends to help you keep going by sponsoring you! Raise money, feel better and help Rethink Mental Illness.
We’re also very excited to have artist Ruby working with us. She’s the one who made all the fantastic art you see on this page, and on the guide you can download HERE.
There’s also an SMS part to run alongside our new challenge – so that you really feel supported throughout the month. We’d love to help you make a positive change and let a new habit set in.
So we want to help you with the hard part (Give it Up, Change it Up, Take it Up) by encouraging you and telling you how fabulous you are, directly to your phone, for just a month while you’re doing the challenge. You'll get a message a day for the first week, then just one every other day for the rest of the month. After that - we won't contact you without your permission, that's all part of our Supporter Promise.
So... how do I sign up?

Here too is a small handy guide about the challenge:
And here's a couple of posters you can print:
And here's the lovely Donna:
I saw the Trihealthlon advertised and immediately thought 'What a great idea' and jogging came to mind. I am an 'on and off' jogger (more off than on) so I thought this would be a great way to motivate me and to raise money for a cause that I'm very passionate about, having had my own lived experience of mental illness. I jogged twice a week for the month of January, come rain or shine, and my fitness levels show a marked improvement, I have a wonderful sense of wellbeing, an amazing amount of support through sponsorship from people. I'd also like to mention my very good friend, Sam - without her, the jogging would have been an awful lot harder, she helped to keep me going - a massive thank you to everyone.
