My story

[p]Thank you for visiting / reading my page. I am taking on the incredible challenge of running the London Marathon 2019 and in doing so I will be fundraising in support of the charity Mind. Please help me to donate as much as possible for this wonderful charity! :)[/p][p][u]Who are Mind?[/u][/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. We [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/news-campaigns/campaigns/]campaign[/url] to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.[/p][p]Watch this short video to find out more?[/p][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxHTZRwXX8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxHTZRwXX8[/url][/p][p]I'm raising funds to support the important work Mind does and to allow them to continue to be there for everyone who needs them.
