My story

[p]Starting on Saturday 11th May, I am running the FULL 1,013km of South West Coastal Path to raise mental health awareness and funds for the three local Minds in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. [/p][p]In January 2018, a friend of mine, John Paul Childs, made a huge decision to take his own life and it has devastated his family and friends. Losing a friend in such heartbreaking circumstances was difficult for everyone that knew Johnno.[/p][p]Mental health issues have added meaning to me personally because my own mother has lived with schizophrenia for most of her life so I have a personal passion to raise funds for charities dedicated to improving people's mental health. [/p][p]Please give generously and if you can, come out and run/walk with me and let's get people talking.[/p][p]You can follow my progress on both [url=https://www.facebook.com/runningmilesforminds]Facebook[/url] & [url=https://twitter.com/miles_4_minds]Twitter[/url].[/p][p]It's OK to not be OK.[/p]
