A PHENOMENAL challenge has been overcome after two former depression sufferers completed a 2,000-mile bike ride in south-east Asia.
Tom Walters, 30, from Southsea, is a marketing officer at Chichester College and was diagnosed with depression after his brother died several years ago.
Both he and his friend Morgan Calton, 30, suffered as a result of losing a loved one. They have spent the past few weeks cycling from Hanoi, in Vietnam, to Singapore.
They have now reached their journey’s end and are returning home.
“We believe sport and extreme challenges can really aid and benefit good mental health,” said Tom before they left.
See the final video in this online series above, filmed before their departure.
A tweeted picture of the pair shows their joy at completing the monumental challenge.
The pair are raising money for mental health charity Mind at uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=mindovermatter2015
