My story

[p]Hello Everyone,[/p][p]I have finally managed to get a place in the 2019 Virgin London Marathon...Whoop Whoop!! [/p][p]I will be running for a charity called Our Minds Matter. Our Minds Matter is a mental health charity established in 2015, that provides invaluable support to those that are in most need of support. [/p][p]Outside of the core charitable support function, Our minds matter are leading on a number of community projects such as "Time to Change" which aims to prevent discrimination to those that suffer with mental health & provide mental health first aid courses to the community. Mental health problems affects 1 in 4 of us and it is something that has affected people closest to me over the last decade. [/p][p]These are some of the reasons I will be running for this charity and this cause. I hope that you will support me by giving a donation, no matter how small, to support this great cause. Any help will be much appreciated and will definitely help me through the gruelling 26+miles, as I am sure I will, at some point "hit the wall."[/p][p][br][/p][p]A little more information about Our Minds Matter can be found at:[/p][p]http://www.ourmindsmatter.org.uk[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our minds Matter is a small charity which engages with all faith groups across the local communities raising awareness and breaking down the stigma around mental health. Our Minds Matter, work across Luton and Bedford in Bedfordshire and the team consists of individuals in the mental health field who have professional and personal experience looking to promote positive mental health and well being.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our Minds Matter Vision[/p][p]“Faith and culture play a critical role in understanding mental health and in the recovery from mental illness”[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our Minds Matter Mission Statement[/p][p]“We aim to empower and educate diverse communities about health and well-being by facilitating an understanding of the mind, body and social connection”[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our Minds Matter Values[/p][p]“We will support anyone regardless of faith, gender, colour, background, education or social status”[/p][p][br][/p][p]“We will show compassion to anyone affected by mental illness (whether it is an individual, family member or friend)”[/p][p][br][/p][p]“We will show absolute integrity”[/p][p][br][/p]
