Around one in four people will experience mental health problems in any given year and last year suicide rates in England hit a record high. RT Projects are a local charity focussed on saving lives through art. Based at 'The Open Art Surgery' in Gilesgate, Durham; RT Projects offer a happy, safe and creative space for individuals who are experiencing poor mental health. RT Projects provide opportunities, for those in need of support, to increase their social interaction and provide a creative outlet. Despite the lockdown restrictions, RT Projects have been busier than ever, developing new ways to support people and moving many resources online to ensure that no one is left feeling isolated or alone. RT Projects are an independent organisation funded by a combination of grants, contracts and their own fundraising initiatives. Events like RUN TO THE SUN are so important to help not just raise money but awareness of the fabulous work they do. This year Run to the Sun will be a virtual relay race in which anyone can take part! It lasts from 12 noon on June 13th to 12 noon June 14th. For every hour of the relay I will be doing a minimum of 500 hula hoop turns (without dropping it!) My total number of turns will be 12,000. I will be keeping a vlog of my progress and getting up at 4.30am on the 14th to keep the hooping going and catch up with the hours I missed during sleep! Wish me luck and (amazing abs🤣) by the end of the 24 hours! Please follow RT projects on Facebook an their event page to see what else it happening!
