Following a short-lived career as a professional Parkour athlete, Callun started Contendunt as a generic, run of the mill Parkour brand.
After years of battling severe mental health problems, Callun decided to change Contendunt's focus to promoting the inclusion and education of mental health in lifestyle sports.
"People in lifestyle sports are doing brilliant and inspiring things physically all the time, but there is a lack of discussion around our mental health. It's time to change that."
Vicky helps us massively behind-the-scenes. She makes a huge effort to speak to everyone who attends and supports our events. She is also responsible in helping us make sure everything runs smoothly.
"Mental health is something I have been passionate about for many years. Through Callun, I have been introduced to parkour, and I have such respect and admiration for the community. I’m proud to be helping Contendunt, starting up healthy conversations regarding Mental Health for not just the Parkour community, but for other lifestyle sports too"

The parkour community is incredible, everyone looks out for each other and i couldn't feel luckier to be a part of it"
Amber is 28 and a year and a half ago took up skateboarding.
For Amber, skating and mental health go hand in hand.
Any time she's on a board she is able to get away from her mind, move her body and overcome obstacles.
"I love the feeling of flying about a bowl, and getting over fears. There is something really empowering about it. I personally am affected my mental health constantly as I have severe anxiety and bipolar disorder, but skating is my outlet. Having open conversations about mental health is very important to me."
Amber says "I am super excited to be a part of the contedunt family and am very proud to be a role model."
Isla is a sport coaching student from Scotland.
"Parkour creates so many physical and mental challenges. After trying Parkour when I was 12/13 I found my passion for it again in 2022, and I work to spark love for lifestyle sports in young people.
Mental health is such an important aspect in our daily lives and is often neglected. I struggled a lot with my own mental health and working with Contendunt will be an amazing opportunity to raise awareness."
