Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
So people! After years of 10ks and half marathons, I have decided to take part in the 2012 London Marathon in April.
One of the reasons is to raise money for the Lesbian and Gay Foundation based here in Manchester. The LGF campaign for a fair and equal society where all lesbian, gay and bisexual people can achieve their full potential, and their mission is: ‘Ending Homophobia, Empowering People.'
My training has already started after completing the BUPA Great Yorkshire Run 2011 in Sheffield and I am training through the winter to make sure I can complete the marathon and ensure I raise as much money as I can!
(Taken from LGF Website) Just remember...
- 1 in 10 men who have sex with men are living with HIV, and of them 1 in 3 in the major UK cities are undiagnosed;
- HIV stigma continues to be a debilitating social condition;
- Only 1 in 10 lesbian and bisexual women of the appropriate age have had a cervical screen in the last 3 years;
- 3 in 5 LGB people have experienced a mental health issue in the last 5 years;
- LGB people are up to 8 times more likely to be heavy alcohol users compared to their heterosexual peers;
- 2 in 5 LGB people use recreational drugs which is significantly higher than within the general population.
- Nearly half of all LGB people smoke, compared with a quarter of the heterosexual population and two thirds of LGB smokers have tried unsuccessfully to quit.
So please dig deep and donate now.
