My story

[p]Hi and thanks for stopping by on my fundraising page.[/p][p]On 23 June I'm doing something I last did 10 years ago - cycling the White Rose Classic. It's a challenging route up some long and steep hills through fantastic Yorkshire countryside, and I'm currently very unfit![/p][p]I'm raising money for the ManKind Initiative which supports domestically abused men and their families. [/p][p]Domestic abuse of men is under-reported, often ignored or critically dismissed, and widely misunderstood. Perpetrators often hide behind societal predispositions based on gender stereotypes. The daily abuse of the victim often lasts many, many years, and can be life-threatening. The impact on him, his children, family and friends is also often long-lasting, for a lifetime or across a generation.[/p][p]Slowly, awareness is growing that abuse is not a gender issue - abuse is abuse; and support is needed for both male and female victims and survivors. This hasn't yet translated into adequate provision in support or law, and what there is is threatened by funding cuts. ManKind campaigns on a gender-inclusive and gender-informed basis.[/p][p]There is much more that we as individuals can do by being open to and listening to victims' and survivors' accounts, and helping to break down the prejudice that many men encounter.[/p][p]ManKind provides crisis support for victims and concerned friends and family, as well as lobbying and campaigning for societal change. It has been there for me. Click on the link below to have a look at their website.[/p][p]Your donation will help ManKind help victims to escape and survive the abuse they and their families have endured. You will be helping to save and rebuild lives.[/p][p]Thank you for your support in donating and in understanding.[/p][p]Right, I'm now off to see how unfit I really am..! [/p]
