My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page. I'm taking on this incredible challenge and fundraising in support of Mind. [/p][p]I have been selected to run the London Marathon in 2020 for Mind! I am so excited to be putting myself through this challenge to push my limits and to achieve something amazing whilst fundraising plenty of money along the way through many activities that I will be sharing and hosting along the way![/p][p]Why Mind?[/p][p]I decided to choose apply for the Marathon through Mind because of 3 reasons.... [/p][p]1) My age and gender are particularly vulnerable to mental health issues due to men being far less likely to seek help, 76% of suicides are by men and suicide is the single most largest cause of death for men under the age of 35. This is why we need to continue to raise money for significant charities like Mind to provide vulnerable individuals 24 hour support in their time of need. [/p][p]2) Working in a mental health hospital has provided me with an experience of support individuals who have explained to me directly that Mind has played a huge role in helping them get support and if it wasn't for them, they feel as though they would not know where to have turned and may not be here today. [/p][p]3) We may know someone who has struggled with mental health difficulties and for me both friends and family have struggled. It is important to me to help a charity continue their work to help individuals close to me in their time of need and future individuals that need instant help.[/p][p][br][/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. 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. 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]
