June 14th 2022 - 9th September 2022

It's been a couple of tough years but 2022 is finally here and this summer I will head off to the USA to take part in my second fundraising challenge, this time supporting the development of the world's first mental wellbeing app designed to empower you to manage, maintain and treat your own mental wellbeing through connecting with community initiatives in your local area.

There have been many moments over the past few years where we thought this project wouldn't happen. Most recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic we lost funding for our team so the project then became a solo project. Then just before Christmas 2021 we found out that the US Embassy wouldn't be able to interview us for a B2 VISA until September 2022, so this meant we had to reduce the project duration from 104 days to 86 days to fit within the ESTA period.

'Challenge' is in the title of our organisation and we've put so much hard work and energy into making this a success. We are so proud to be able to make this happen and so thankful to all our supporters, sponsors and team for everything they have done and continue to do to make this challenge happen. Here's how it's broken down!

Thanks

Ben
