My story

[p]I have been one of the lucky ones to win a ballot place in the London Marathon 2020. I thought it was only right to use this opportunity to raise money for a Charity that is close to my heart and am sure in some way has affected you or people close to you. I would like to raise money for Mind, Mind is a mental health charity here to make sure anyone with mental health problems has somewhere to turn to for advice and support. [/p][p][b][u]Update Sept 2021:[/u][/b][/p][p]Unfortunately in June 2021 I injured my deltoid ligaments in my right foot playing a charity football match and have not yet fully recovered. With a heavy heart I have had to withdraw from the London Marathon in October 2021 as I have not trained for 3 months and feel I couldn't run the whole marathon and Justify the money you all have kindly donated. Instead I have deferred to the London Marathon in October 2022. Once I feel I am fit enough to start training again I will update via social media. I am still 100% focused on running the marathon but feel I need to be 100% fit and am able to run the full 26.2 miles to justify what has been donated to this wonderful charity. [/p][p][b][u]Update:[/u][/b] Due to Covid-19 the London marathon Has now moved to October 3rd 2021. This will now give me a good year to get fit and aim for a reasonable time. Between now and October 2021 I will be running a series of events to raise awareness for mental health. A list of race I've run this year and going to run are below.[/p][p][b]Canterbury 10 mile - January 2020[/b][/p][p][b]Bedgebury 10 mile - February 2020[/b][/p][p][b]Deal Half Marathon 13.1 miles - February 2020[/b][/p][p][b]Lydd 20 mile - March 2020[/b][/p][p][b]Canterbury 10k - 16th August 2020[/b][/p][p][b]Bewl water Half Marathon 13.1 miles - 19th September 2020[/b][/p][p][b]Kent Spring Half Marathon 13.1 miles - 4th October 2020[/b][/p][p][b]London Marathon(26.2 mile) - 3rd October 2021[/b][/p][p]As you can see I have a lot of miles to cover until I get to the London Marathon with training runs in between. [/p][p]I would greatly appreciate any donations no matter how small as this really can help make a BIG difference to people suffering with mental health problems. Without charities like Mind it would be hard to find the advice and support so as I'm sure you would agree this is a worthwhile charity.[/p][p][b][i][u]Whether you can donate or not remind those you love or know that it's Ok not To be ok[/u][/i][/b][/p][p]Thank you x[/p]
