Specialisms: Social Good, Mental Health & Physical Exercise

Hannah is the founder of RED January, a nationwide movement that’s empowering people to move every day in January, to ‘beat the blues away.’

 

Hannah was inspired to start RED January after witnessing the transformative effective that regular physical activity had on her Mum’s mental health, particularly during the winter months, a time when many of us need an extra boost of motivation.

 

Since 2016, RED January has inspired 200,000 people to embrace physical activity to support their mental health and raised over £3million for mental health charities. During RED January 2021, more than 50% of the RED community experienced less stress and reduced signs of depressive symptoms.

Alongside driving RED forward, Hannah supports people and organisations to launch and nurture their own social good initiatives.

 

Hannah is also a regular speaker at corporate events, universities and schools, spreading the word about the benefits of physical activity on our health. She has penned a RED January magazine column, appeared on mental wellbeing panels and has taken to the stage to speak at the leading health and fitness events in the UK.
