I have run all my life: I run away when things get tough, run away from responsibilities and adulthood... Now it is time to put all that "training" into good use and run THE marathon to support a fantastic charity - Mind (http://mind.org.uk/)!
While 1 in 4 people in the UK is facing mental health problems each year, the work Mind is doing to help those in need and raising awareness around mental health cannot be supported enough! Mind won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. And I want to get them closer to their goal.
When I started to run more regularly in early 2016, I struggled to complete 3 km without collapsing. Today, less than 10 months later, I have 6 half marathon finisher's medals to show off. So, I am convinced that with your support and encouragement, I will be able to put on my blue-white running shoes (to match the top, obviously!), hit the roads of London in April to conquer the, undoubtably painful, 26.2 miles (42.2 km) and get Mind noticed even more.
You can support myself and Mind by clicking on the "donate now" button on this page.
Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
Thank you ever so much for your support!
