We all love a challenge, right? Well, some of us anyway!
Sophie Jude took on a personal challenge in May, to raise funds for Harmless and The Tomorrow Project by strapping on her walking boots and climbing Scarfell Pike, the tallest mountain in England!
Sophie chose to reach literal heights for Harmless in memory of her childhood best friend, who she lost by suicide. We’re so proud of Sophie’s amazing achievement and all that her climb represents to those who have also been bereaved by suicide.
Sophie’s climb is a great demonstration of determination and resilience in the face of grief. Sophie absolutely smashed her challenge by raising over £700 and even got to enjoy some views to boot!
Losing someone you love is never easy and we all cope in different ways with the uncertainty and pain bereavement brings; but one thing that is certain is that the funds Sophie has raised will go on to enable us to continue providing life-saving support for others who have been impacted by suicide or who are struggling with suicidal thoughts themselves.
Maybe you’ve been inspired by Sophie’s achievement and would like to join us in our work by taking on a challenge of your own for Harmless and The Tomorrow Project? If so, do let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
