Building on the successes on the first team who completed a 250 kilometer Sahara race through the Namib desert and the second team who completed a 200 kilometer trail run in Nepal’s Kathmandu Rim, the team of 7 medical students this year aim to summit the 10 highest volcanoes in Indonesia, with a total elevation of over 30,000 meters. Funds raised by our team will be channelled towards initiatives under the Singapore Association of Mental Health (SAMH). It is the value we see in this project that motivates us to go the extra mile.
What do people really think about mental illnesses?
Find out why Mental Muscle is embarking on this journey to raise awareness for Mental Health.
We aim to raise $25,000 for the Youth Reach Wing of SAMH through our run. SAMH is a non-profit, voluntary welfare organisation seeking to promote mental health in the community and improve the rehabilitation and reintegration of persons with mental illness. Donate to SAMH via our GIVEasia donation platform.
Mental Muscle is a student-led initiative, run by medical students, aiming to raise public awareness of Mental Illnesses, the need for social support for these individuals and to dispel societal stigmatization against them. This term, 1 Aug 17 – 30 July 18, will be its third successive year.
The previous two successful expeditions included a 250km Namib Desert Race followed by a 200km trek in Nepal, which raised funds close to S$50, 000 and S$40, 000 respectively for our beneficiary, Singapore Association of Mental Health (SAMH).
This year, with a total of 16 members spanning 3 cohorts of medical students, our project comprises of an overseas physical challenge, the 10 Peaks Challenge 2018, and various local endeavours, including hosting talks, road-shows and workshops.
Funds raised by our team will be channelled towards the Creative SAY! Division of SAMH, an exciting new initiative to reach out to at-risk youths to raise awareness of mental health issues and build a stronger support system for these youths.
