Walker Raising Funds For C.A.L.M.

Three Peaks Trial 2015 entrant Jon Jones is fundraising on this year's Platinum Route for the charity CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably, which works to prevent male suicide which is the single biggest killer of men aged between 20 and 45 in the UK.

Jon says "My brother, Oliver, died last year. He had a lot of problems which got the better of him and things seemed hopeless. Tragically, he took his own life. Every day I wish I could tell him how much he is missed. I wish I could go back and give him whatever help he needed to get past his problems.

Oliver loved to go walking around his local area in Pembrokeshire. His passion for exploring is part of what inspired me to get involved in mountain hiking, and it has become an important part of my life. I always feel closest to Oliver when I am out hiking.

I want to raise money for a charity called CALM, which campaigns to reduce male suicide rates, because I want to help other people who are struggling with the same problems my brother had, and prevent them from resorting to such desperate measures."
