Thomas Ryan & Teddy George - Mental Health Awareness Erg 2019
On Wednesday the 11th of September at 9:00am I plan to complete a 5 hour erg to raise awareness for mental health in New Zealand.Otago
My name is Thomas Ryan, I am 18 years old and have recently finished the most incredible season of rowing with an amazing bunch of boys at OBHS who pushed hard and strived to accomplish goals that we had previously set out to achieve. I decided that I would use that motivation I had during the season to try to make a difference to a big issue in New Zealand.
Mental health is a very serious issue in New Zealand, being aware of me
ntal health and accepting of mental health is the beginning of us changing statistics. Because New Zealand has statistics that we should not be proud of or leading worldwide.
Thankfully in New Zealand we have amazing organisations that are here to help people that are struggling, such as the mental health foundation that can help anyone that may be struggling in anyway.
Because of this I have decided to complete a 5 hour erg (around 60km) on Wednesday the 4th of September, this will not be easy but by doing this I am hoping to raise money and awareness for mental health, and also I hope to help let people know that it is okay not to be okay, and make it okay to be struggling and ask for help.
