My story

[p]Hi there,[/p][p]My name is Saf. First of all, thank you for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p]I'm raising money for Mind, the mental health charity, by walking from London to Rome. Yes, that's right...London to Rome. That's a distance of over 2,000 km, which is going to take me around three and a half months. [/p][p]So why walk when I could take an easyJet flight for £27.99? [/p][p]Well, there are so many reasons - but the most important one is to raise money for Mind and help them to continue their fantastic work. Mind provides advice to, supports, and campaigns on behalf of people who experience mental health problems. Mind's work is more important now than ever. One in four people experience a mental health problem each year, and every two hours someone in England and Wales takes their own life. In 2018 I lost two friends to suicide. Both were my age - young, with so much of their lives still to live. [/p][p]As much as I'm walking to raise money for Mind, I'm also walking to raise awareness about mental health. Starting a conversation about mental health can feel like a daunting prospect, but it shouldn't. I'll be starting that conversation, and I hope to encourage you to start your own. Mental health is every bit as important as physical health, so it's time we ditched the stigma and started making conversations about mental health a part of our every day. [/p][p]You can read more about my journey to Rome, and my conversations on mental health, on my blog: [url=http://www.allroadsleadtorome.org]www.allroadsleadtorome.org[/url][/p][p]Thank you![/p][p]Saf[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
