Run Down Under
We are supporting the campaign that our @run_around_europe National Manager Andy @chubs2marathonlife has created called #whatifirunwithyou. It is all about raising awareness and supporting those battling with mental health. This Sunday runners from around the globe will be wearing white tops with the names of those who they are running for, as an act of support. The Run The World Team (@run_around_europe, @run_around_usa and @run_down_under) would like to support this campaign as well as those suffering from mental health issues. If you feel as though running would support you with your mental health, we would love for you to contact us so we can offer you a discounted subscription. In return, we ask that you do not thank us, rather just know that we are all here to support one another. We will run this offer until Sunday 8pm 19/02. Please email email@example.com for further details. Many thanks, The Run the World team Travis, Eric and Andy
