Hereford Stampede American Football Club have so far raised an incredible £2470 in memory of Mike Penhalagan, who sadly took his own life in June.
From Hereford Stampede’s Virgin Money Giving Page:
“On Friday 5th June 2020 we received devastating news that our teammate and brother Mike Penhalagan ‘Big Mike’ had committed suicide following a battle with mental health.
In memory of and to honour Big Mike Hereford Stampede staff and players will be running, walking and/or cycling the distance of Route 66. 2,400 miles, 4,800,000 steps to raise money for Mind Herefordshire.
Every year 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems.
Help us raise awareness of this ever increasing issue and donate to a fantastic charity who are there for those in need.”
