We believe in the undeniable healing powers of the outdoors and adventure. Every year we take beneficiaries facing mental health struggles because of adversity on challenges across the globe. These trips act as the catalyst for change after which we offer on-going support in the form of life coaching, funding towards therapy, career grants and much more to ensure the individual can realise that change and take steps towards a brighter future.
“M2M is more than a charity, it’s a community, it’s a family” - Leah Birkin, 2021 Beneficiary
We all face adversity in our lives and sometimes it's enough to knock us off track but we’ve proven that with the right support and guidance our beneficiaries not only find a way back but come back stronger.
What is included in the beneficiary programme?
Whether it be because of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression or overcoming a physical disability we believe in the healing power of purpose, progress and perseverance...
Our three pillars are the foundation of Millimetres 2 Mountains. They are woven into the fabric of everything we do, who we are and more importantly what we hope to offer others through our events, adventures and support programmes.
Purpose – Purpose is one of the cornerstones of happiness and a lack of it is often the catalyst for testing periods in peoples lives. Helping people find or rediscover purpose is an important part of what we do and why we like to challenge peoples pre-conceptions about themselves. By stepping outside their comfort zone and realising how much more they are capable of, suddenly a whole world of new possibilities presents itself.
Perseverance – The ability to stick something out for the greater good particularly in spite of difficulties, obstacles or discouragement. Perseverance is one of the most valuable character traits you can carry through life but becomes particularly poignant in times of hardship or change. At M2M we believe that perseverance can be nurtured through experience and our challenges are designed to do exactly that.
Progress – Purpose and perseverance lead to progress. Progress, no matter how small plays a crucial role in self-esteem and the ability to value yourself. Often too much time is spent planning and waiting for the right time rather than doing. Progress follows action and once things start to move forward you would be amazed at how quickly life can build momentum. The hardest part is to take that first step and that’s where we want to help. Small steps, big dreams.Apply Now
