My story

[p]Dear all,[/p][p]This year I am running the London Marathon in order to fundraise for St Michael’s Fellowship – a local South London charity supporting vulnerable families in order to improve the lives and futures of disadvantaged children. [/p][p]I started running in the first lockdown last year, while struggling to keep my mental balance. Unable to see friends and family and having less options to spend time doing the things I used to love, I hit the parks to cope with an overwhelming sense of anxiety. Running has quickly become a mental relief and a time of peace and quiet. [/p][p]But I am aware that many people in my community never get to enjoy this feeling and constantly deal with much more severe issues. As such, I want my running to go beyond making me feel good and make a difference in the lives of those less privileged. I came across the work of this charity and knew I wanted to support what they are doing.[/p][p]St Michel’s Fellowship is spending 96p in every £1 received in delivering services to families, making a real impact on the lives of families dealing with mental health issues, domestic violence, neglect, substance misuse and learning difficulties. It operates four residential family assessment centres, provides support to parents who have used these centres and to other vulnerable parents, offers a safe space to reunite parents and children living apart, helps dads be a positive influence in the life of their children and run a support group for local mums. The parents St Michael's works with are, almost without exception, economically disadvantaged. Please have a look at their website for further detail on the work they do [url=][/url][/p][p]Even if at time the past 18 months have been difficult for me, I was fortunate enough to have a supporting network of friends and colleagues, as well as my lovely family always there for me. To all of you, please kindly help me raise funds and make a difference in the lives of these less privileged families.[/p][p]Grateful for your help![/p][p]Roxana [/p]
