Race4Rene - Sparking conversations about mental health in young men and women

Our beloved René took his own life at the age of 22 after struggling with severe depression. It is in our proud memory of this incredible young man that we take to the seas in aid of mental health.

A challenge of a lifetime in memory of Old Antonian Rene Zamudio
A challenge of a lifetime in memory of Old Antonian Rene Zamudio

The race sets off from Las Palmas on the Canary Islands and finishes in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia, requiring the Race4Rene
sailing team to cruise unaided for 2,700 NM across the Atlantic ocean. This will be the crew’s very first ocean crossing and in some cases first sail, competing with experienced racers in one of
the toughest amateur ocean races on earth. Whilst racing around the clock for 16 days, the Race4Rene crew will
experience the rolling Atlantic swells, invariable rain & gusts of up to 30kts. Arriving in St. Lucia will not only be a triumph
of the seas, but that of a group of men and women together on a boat in memory of their friend talking openly and candidly about their loss and mental health.

Please read more about Rene, the race, and how you can support us by following the below link.

Suicide is the leading cause of death in men and women aged 20-34 in the UK
and there is simply not enough being done.

For any former classmates of Rene's who would like to get in touch, please do email us on alumni@stanthonysprep.co.uk
