My story

[p]I feel honoured to have the opportunity to run the marathon on behalf of South Kent Mind. Although I wouldn’t consider myself an amateur runner, I wouldn’t go as far as classing myself as an elite marathon runner. [/p][p]Through experiences of family breakdown and co-parenting struggles I have had to strongly focus on looking after my mental health during and after the time of these issues. Running is something that I feel massively helps my mental health. It ticks 2 boxes I enjoy which is exercising and being outside. Everyone has their own many ways and means of coping with life, mine is running, running away from the not so good times. I feel it also gives you a clear head during and after so it’s my little ray of sunshine I need. [/p][p]That’s my story but everyone has their own story to go through. [/p][p]There are no criteria of who, which mental health can affect. South Kent Mind is a great advocate of this and has many ways of providing that; [/p][p]• Providing individual needs through a personal centred approach. [/p][p]• Rebuilding resilience to improve mental health and physical wellbeing. [/p][p]• Developing better support on the risk of self-harming and/or suicide. [/p][p]16M people in the UK experience a mental illness.[/p][p]75% of young people with a mental health problem are not receiving treatment. [/p][p]For men under 35, suicide is the largest cause of death. [/p][p]Just £7.50 will pay for a member to receive counselling. [/p][p]Every donation will not only help me and give me the drive to finish in a good time, but more importantly help every other person that needs support. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. [/p][p]Virgin Money is a not for profit organisation and will claim Gft Aid on a charities behalf where the donor is eligible. Where £10 is donated the charity will receive £12.50 after Gift Aid. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I really appreciate all of your support and thank you for your donations. [/p]
