My story

[p]Thanks so much for visiting my page! [/p][p]I want to keep this short and sweet. Mental health is something that will have an impact on us or someone we know - 1 in 4 people will suffer from mental health issues at some point in their lives. [/p][p]Mental health can come in so many forms and is misunderstood because it cannot be seen, leading to people underestimating the severity it can have on the individual suffering. Personal experiences have made me voice my opinions on the struggles mental health issues have on day to day life, in the hope that it helps others understand they are not alone. [/p][p]But, I'm not just running this for me - I'm doing it on behalf of all of those close to me and unknown to me, who suffer with any form of mental illness. That being said, it would be greatly appreciated if you could donate even a small amount to such an amazing cause. [/p][p]I have chosen to set myself the massive challenge of raising at least £2,000 and running 26.2 miles in 5 hours or less in London next year to raise awareness, fight the stigma, and say thank you to a charity which are helping so many people everyday! [/p][p]It would be massively appreciated if you could share this page on all forms of social media to help me reach my target! I need this to be posted all over the Internet to ensure I have the pressure on me to train hard, as I am running 26.2 miles. [/p][p]Thanks so much for all your love, support and assistance! [/p][p]Love Char x[/p]
