My story

[p]Just under two years ago, after a big life change, I started to think about what I wanted to achieve before I reached 25. [/p][p]In 2016, after having left University and travelled, I realised I wanted to achieve something significant before I turned 25. I wanted to be the fittest version of myself and training to run a marathon seemed like the best idea. The small amount of running I had done in the past had provided escapism and an enjoyable way to get fit and so it seemed like an obvious choice. [/p][p]I knew when I started thinking about running the marathon that I wanted to fundraise. I am fundraising for Mind UK and Cancer Research UK. Mental and physical health are imperative to everyone’s wellbeing. I know people who have suffered from both illnesses and I have seen first hand how debilitating they can be for everyone involved, not least those living with it every day.[/p][p]Any amount will mean the world to these charities and those directly helped as a result of your donations. I know it will certainly spur me on in my training in these cold winter months, seeing how much I can raise for such worthwhile causes![/p][p]Thank you so much.[/p]
