My story

[p]I'm running the London Marathon 2019 for Mind. Having run 3yrs ago as a fairly new runner it changed my life and I never looked back when it came to running. This year I've set myself a pretty tough target finish time but I'm excited to challenge myself both physically and mentally for the next few months of winter training. With the cold, wind, rain and snow set to test me to the limit I needed a reason to keep going and that reason was Mind and awareness and support they bring to mental health.[/p][p]In the hustle and bustle of London life running for me has always been my escapism both mentally and physically and is as important to me now as breathing. Exercise is one of the many ways people deal with mental health but the work that Mind do is invaluable to thousand of people who they support every day.[/p][p] Thanks for donating towards this important and worthwhile charity as they continue to raise awareness for mental health. [/p][p]Who are Mind?[/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We're here for you. Today. Now. Whether you're stressed, depressed or in crisis. We'll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.[/p][p]We provide [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/]advice and support[/url] to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.

[/p][p][b]£120[/b] could offer a lifeline to eight people in desperate need of support from our Mind legal line.[/p][p][b]£200[/b] could help us keep the Mind Infoline open for 1 hour, helping 35 people.[/p][p][b]£300[/b] could support a young person bereaved by suicide to access 1:1 and group support. [/p][p][b]£550[/b] could provide five people struggling with their mental health a place in a 10-week wellbeing group with team sports and cookery.[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for donating.
