It is well publicised that athletes (both men and women) from all sports can suffer a period of mental illness whilst either during their career or shortly upon retirement.
Whilst mental health awareness and understanding is improving with more and more education amenities, we found that going out for a walk really does help to improve levels of stress and anxiety that can be built up over time.
The founders of the W.A.T.C.H organisation who are all retired sportsmen believe that they have the drive and aspiration to move forward this initiative and help to raise money and awareness for mental health and there is no better way than exploring our fantastic outdoors and improving mental health.
Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro has three volcanic cones, Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Mawenzi and Shira are extinct but Kibo, the highest peak, is dormant and could erupt again so our team need to be on the lookout!
More Information coming soon!!
