New Mental Health Ambassador for RFRC


Val Perigo has recently been accepted to the role of England Athletics (EA) Mental Health Ambassador (MHA) for Running Forever RC.  This role exists to support the mental wellbeing of club members, engaging with local mental health groups to encourage their members to start running and to talk to club members about mental health pointing them in the direction of help if needed.  The MHA will also share information and guidance provided by EA with the committee and the club.
 
Val doesn’t pretend to be an expert but asked to take on this role following her own ill health last year.  Val says that ‘both talking and running are big parts of my own recovery,  RFRC are a lovely group of people and it’s amazing how many people have been through or are going mental health issues’.
 
RFRC is pleased to have an MHA on board and hopes to set up a #runandtalk event sometime soon with involvement from our running coaches.
