Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. All donations, however small, are welcome! 

I've committed myself to completing the Virgin London Marathon 2010 and raising over £1,400 for the Mental Health Foundation. I'm loving the challenge so far, both in terms of training and coming up with all sorts of ideas to help me reach my target. But I'm still in the early stages and it's only going to get tougher! Your generosity and how I imagine it will be crossing that finishing line on the 25th of April will keep me going! 

The Mental Health Foundation's amazing work covers all forms of mental illness but the one that's closest to my heart is depression. I will be running in memory of a dear friend and hope that by raising awareness, we can help dispel some of the taboos that still surrounds so many forms of mental illness. Your donations will help improve the lives of sufferers and their families.

I'll be organising all sorts of fundraising events too so look out for those! Keep coming back to this page for details and to track my progress. Who knows, I may even run the race in fancy dress if you help me reach the target by the 1st of April...

Thank you in advance for all your support and encouragement. I couldn't do it without you.

Vanessa
