Angry Jogger 100k Fundraising Page

Matt Waterworth

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my 100km page.

I'm running from London 2 Cambridge for Mind after a winter and early spring of inactivity. For the last 4 years I'd been running quite consistently and it helped me manage my own mental issues to some extent. When I stopped running I lost real balance in my life and struggled to get out of bed most days and became a bit of a recluse again. 

That's why I decided to start this campaign. I wanted to help a charity who can offer help to people who are struggling with this crap. I'm taking on the 100k as I want to be back to where i was before I let myself go a little. 

I'm giving away a copy of my book 'Angry Jogger' to anyone who donates £10+ for this campaign. I will be ordering the books in mid June for delivery by July 10th. Please leave your email address with your donation if you would like a copy and I'll be in contact with an estimated delivery date for your book.

Thanks again for your help.
