My story

[p]Hi, thank you for visiting our families Virgin Money Giving page.[/p][p]My wife Sally, my eldest daughter Katie and myself Chris are running the Great North Run in September 2019 for Mind.[/p][p]We have chosen to support this charity as a few years ago our family was touched by mental health challenges.[/p][p]Being able to talk openly to people and having them listen was a huge help and with great support from everybody we are back on track! [/p][p]Since then we have been amazed by just how many people, including family and friends, that are experiencing similar situations or have been affected by mental health. This is why we, as a family, have chosen to run and raise money for Mind.[/p][p]So thank you for visiting our page and if you can donate that would be great – your donation will make a huge difference to so many people. 😊[/p][p][br][/p][p]Who are Mind?[/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity.

We'll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.[/p][p]We provide [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/]advice and support[/url] to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
