1st - 31st of October is Speak Up Month
October is Speak Up Month, a month that raises awareness of Freedom to Speak Up and encourages speaking up to be business as usual for everyone.
This Year Speak Up Month is Breaking Barriers, it doesn’t matter what background, heritage or experience people have, Skelmersdale Running Club would like to encourage everyone to speak up. We would like to give our lovely runners confidence to overcome their barriers and make speaking up business as usual by promoting an inclusive environment that encourages speaking up, listening and following up.
‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’
Martin Luther King Jr.
‘Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologise for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth. ‘ Gandhi.
