Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon 2015
Event date:Sunday 11 October 2015- I am participating in the marathon to raise funds for support and awareness , All funds raised will be donated to SENSE- a national charity supporting and campaigning for people who are deafblind and those with sensory impairments. My target for the marathon is 2000 GBP.
I am on the beginning of my journey to becoming a mental health registered midwife and spend alot of time researching charities specifically dealing in mental health support. The understanding of mental health is of the minority and funding is deeply needed to research conditions and offer support. I am on a mission to raise funds to support various mental health charities by fundraising. I would, after the marathon, like to hold a charity ball however this is a costly night to organise...so this will be my next mission!!
A gift of £50 provides four people with an in-depth, personal call back from a mental health professional, providing them with consistent care in a time of despair.
£25 enables four people to receive the first 30 minutes of personal, emotional mental health support, allowing them to begin their own journey to mental health recovery.
Just £10 will provide a vulnerable person with a personalised package of 5 weekly text messages, providing them with comfort and support at times that are most difficult for them.
