We are completing 14 marathons to beat the January blues

We are planning to put our best foot first in the new year – by completing 14 marathons in a month.


The team at Prominent and RB have each pledged to walk or run a total of 26 miles in January for the Charlie Watkins Foundation, which looks to help improve the lives of those suffering with mental health.

By January 31st our team of 14 hope to have clocked up 364 miles between them.

Helen Rudd, managing director of both businesses, said: “January is famously one of the most depressing months of the year but exercise can really help to beat the blues.”

Prominent and RB hope to make £500 for the Charlie Watkins Foundation and are urging you to donate.

“The Charlie Watkins Foundation has been a charity we have supported since its inception and it works closely with Mind,” said Helen.

“Mind meanwhile supports RED January, a community initiative that encourages you to support your mental health by doing something active every single day.

“Every member of my team intends to run or walk a mile a day through this month – and it’s given us a goal and a focus in a characteristically tough month.”

The Charlie Watkins Foundation was set up by Harry Watkins after his twin brother, Charlie, tragically took his life in March 2017 at the age of 22.

The goal was to increase mental health awareness across universities, particularly in men, as well as launch their online mental health platform, Chat with Charlie, which is funded by donations.
