This past year I lost a great friend to suicide due to depression. When this happened his girlfriend at the time was expecting their first child together.
I have decided to run a half marathon in Jan's name, and will be donating half the funds raised to a depression charity, and the other half of the funds to Carly's little guy Liam, who is Jan's little guy who he never got to meet. The donation that is going to Liam and Carly is for a college or University fund for him. It will be going into a high interest account.
My race is May 8th 2016 and I will also be running a second one in Sept. Next year I do plan on running a full marathon. Please if you feel this story has touched your heart than don't hesitate to send a message of encouragement.
If you feel like donating to the cause then, I and everyone else involved will be forever grateful for your donation. As for progress you can follow my training on Instagram at, nathan1616. Emails of encouragement would be great also. [email protected]
Thanks so much for the support everyone :) xoxo
