AN organisation that has as its central message ‘it is okay not to feel okay and it is absolutely okay to ask for help’ sought to raise awareness about suicide prevention in West Cork last week.

Jim Breen and five other runners set out from Mizen Head at 8.30am on Tuesday morning, as part of a run from Mizen to Malin, under the umbrella of the Cycle Against Suicide organisation.

Every year, for the last three years, there has been a 14-day Cycle Against Suicide event and this year 7,500 people took part.

Communities the length and breadth of the country that have been inspired by the annual event are now organising spin-off events to continue to raise awareness of suicide prevention, as well as highlight the help and support that is available within their own communities.

The first day of this 11-day event saw Jim Breen and the other runners complete the 68.5km run from the Mizen to Dunmanway, with 20 more taking part in the run from Dunmanway to Blarney on Wednesday.

Slava Koza, a runner from New Jersey, who is famous for having traversed America, the UK, France and Cuba, is taking part in the 11-day run as he hopes to cross Ireland, literally and figuratively, off his list.
