A huge congratulations to Oly who recently set himself the challenge to complete a 100km run to raise funds for The Trussell Trust. This entailed completing 130 laps of his 770m crescent within a 24 hour period.
The encouragement Oly received from his friends and local community to a large online following was incredible and he raised over £5k for the charity, which is working to stop UK hunger and poverty. The trust's network of foodbanks provide emergency food and support to people in crisis. We donated 10% from the sale of this print to further support the cause.
After turning to running in 2017, Oly (Run4YourMind) documents his journey via his personal blog. Oly is on a mission to raise awareness, support, motivate and inspire others struggling with mental illness to better themselves through the power of running. It was an honour to commemorate his 100km achievement with a personalised print, and we’re looking forward to following where this journey will take him next!
“Thanks to Personal Best Vests for the incredible print, honouring my 100km run “around the block” for the The Trussell Trust in May 🍃
I set out to do something slightly out of the ordinary, in the hope to bring the community together and raise a bit of money for the local food banks. We raised just short of £5500 in 6 days. ❤️
I’ll never forget the love and support I received that week and the friends I’ve made. Crossing that finish line was one of the greatest feelings ever. 🙌”
“I’m over the moon with my Personal Best Vest! From the attention to detail, customer support (patience), general care about my achievement, to the finish product - It was an incredible customer journey. Thanks for helping me honour my 100 km run (around my block) 😊 Oly - Run4YourMind”
