My story

[p]Met me? Excellent. You probably find the idea of me running 13 miles hilarious then and you should pay good money to witness it. The more I raise, the more ridiculous photos of me in neon running kit you can experience. Worth it. If that's enough to convince you to donate, stop reading.[/p][p][lt]br /[gt]But also if you've met me, you're probably aware of how much time I've spent suffering from severe anxiety. Running is one of a number of Very Boring Healthy Life Choices I make in order not to suffer crippling panic attacks. My anxiety has destroyed relationships, led me to hurt people I love, forced me to leave jobs, had me phone friends and family in the middle of the night crying hysterically unable to tell them what's wrong. It's a horrible way to live and I wouldn't wish anyone to experience it.[/p][p][lt]br /[gt]In 2016, I am running - a lot - in aid of Mind, a mental health charity who have provided me with a lot of support and guidance over the past few years. Amongst the many races I've foolishly signed up for are the Bath Half, Run Hackney and London 10,000 with more to come. By year end, I should have accumulated some serious mileage.[/p][p][lt]br /[gt]I'm massively passionate about mental health. It's under-funded and under-publicised and despite it touching most of our lives in some way at some time, it's hugely stigmatised (not for me, I'll talk to flipping anybody about it). I spent years trying desperately to get the support I needed and eventually had to use private health care to do so. Not everyone has that luxury and not everyone has the motivation to persevere. NHS mental health funding is increasingly threatened and I believe it's so important to contribute to other methods of support and continue raising awareness.[/p][p][/p][p]Thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]

I am meant to be raising money not donating it (currently laughing to myself), but I have been reading your blog and you have won me over. I wish you all the best on your journey and fundraising.
