Make Mark's Miles Count for Talitha Arts

Make Mark's Miles Count for Talitha Arts

Why we need your help

This October, I - Mark Ridealgh - will be running my first marathon - The London Marathon - in support of Talitha Arts. Talitha is a therapeutic arts charity which offers restorative workshops for those who have experienced trauma, abuse, violence, homelessness and for those living with dementia.

I'm both thrilled and honoured to be raising awareness for Talitha Arts. Their therapeutic arts workshops have helped provide those who have experienced trauma, violence, homelessness, and those living with dementia, a real sense of worth and purpose in life. The money raised will mean Talitha Arts can help even more individuals in the future, at the same time allowing the organisation to adapt to the new challenges brought about by the recent pandemic. I only really started running regularly 6 months ago, and the furthest I've ever run before in one session is a half marathon. My training officially started on Sunday 11th July, a 12 week intensive programme that will hopefully put me in the best possible shape to get the job done. I know it's going to be a real challenge, but knowing that a little bit of personal pain and suffering can help to ease other people's trauma through the work Talitha Arts carries out, will hopefully give me the motivation I need to complete the training, and ultimately, the London Marathon. Please donate what you can to support this great organisation.
