My story

[p][b]TAKE ME TO THE VIRTUAL 10K SIGN UP: www.runwithellie.com[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]In 2020[/b], I will be taking on an even bigger challenge of [b]running the Manchester, London and Liverpool Marathon in the space of 7 weeks[/b], proudly wearing MIND on my vest. Please help support this cause in anyway you can, it would mean so much.[/p][p][b]Thank you so much for everyone’s support in my fundraising for the London Marathon 2019. [/b]Running in support of Mind did nothing short of change my life – it taught me so much about myself, and my ability to overcome hurdles. Sometimes I feel vulnerable, and running helps me with that. I hope in continuing this journey I can inspire others to get active and feel stronger and happier.[/p][p][br][/p][p]As some of you are already aware, my big sister Becky has struggled with her mental health her whole life. After support from CAHMS as a teen, she was on leave from work with depression for over 5 months. In 2016 she was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and hit her lowest when she made an attempt on her life.[/p][p][i]Now she is a lot stronger and happier - she has built her life back up and is in the process of changing career paths into the mental health sector and I think she is incredible and brave and I love her very much. [/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]My sister is incredibly important to me, but there are so many other people (that I know and don’t know) that suffer. I will be running every single step of the way metaphorically holding their hand and waving a flag for better support in mental health.[/b][/p][p][b][i]You don't have to be diagnosed, or feel a certain way - it's okay to not be okay, and it's okay to ask for help.[/i][/b][/p][p][b]Memory miles:[/b][/p][p]There are 26 miles in a marathon. I will run every mile in support or memory of somebody special. Each name will be printed on the back of my shirt and I will wear their name with pride. [/p][p]If you are able, please make a donation write ‘their name and one mile’ in the description. [/p][p][b]Thank you so much for any support you can give, I really do appreciate everything.[/b][/p][p][b]Ellie x[/b][/p][p]Thank you for visiting my page. I'm taking on this incredible challenge and fundraising in support of Mind. [/p][p]Who are Mind?[/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity.

Please donate if you can.[/p][p]This is what your donation could do:[/p][p][b]£10[/b] could allow us to send essential information booklets about mental health to 40 people.[/p][p][b]£40[/b] could pay for 28 people to campaign for change on our behalf.[/p][p][b]£70[/b] could keep our online community, Elefriends, open and safe for two hours. [/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. Your support is hugely appreciated.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mind. [/p][p]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.[/p]
