My story

[p]Hello,[/p][p]As anyone who has been reading [url=http://www.clarerosefoster.co.uk/category/notes-from-depression-island/]my blog[/url] will know, I've been dealing with a tricky relationship with exercise for the last year or so. I've been signed up to Ride London through Mind for months but, despite really wanting to do it,  I haven't been sure whether it would be good for me mentally or physically.[/p] [p]After a lot of soul searching I've decided to give it a go. I think Mind do [url=http://www.mind.org.uk/about-us/what-we-do/]amazing things for so many people with mental health problems[/url] - and they supported me to stay in work when I was having a really difficult time myself.[/p][p]But (because I didn't want to let anyone who sponsered me down if I ended up not participating) I'm a bit late in getting started with my fundraising. I'd really appreciate it if you were able to send a few pounds my (Mind's) way to help make my ride worthwhile. I'll be doing so myself as well.[/p] [p]I'm not going to race it like the marathon, but it will be longer than I've ever cycled before so i expect it to be a challenge anyway..[/p] [p]Thank you very much![/p] [p]Clare[/p] [p]P.S Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
