Story

Hi everyone,

I'm running the London Marathon on the 4th October 2021 (unless the date gets changed again. It was originally supposed to be 26th April 2020) for a great cause that's very important to me. As most of you know, I lost my brother Steve to suicide a few years ago, after he lost a battle with mental health issues.

Shortly after, Steve's friend and work colleague Kirsty decided to create a charity organisation named Reach Out, a suicide prevention service that offers an opportunity for people to just talk about what they are going through, either over the phone or in person at one of their drop-in centres in the Essex area.

They have a group of trained volunteers who offer an opportunity to talk in confidence, with a friendly, local person who won’t judge you or try to fix you. You can talk to them about anything that is bothering you and how it is affecting your life, especially if you have thoughts of hurting yourself. You don’t have to be feeling suicidal to speak to them.

I understand that you probably already know people running for charities, or you may already have a favourite charity that you support, but if you could consider giving anything at all to support this great cause myself and the team at Reach Out would be really grateful.

I have never run a marathon before. I did run a half marathon for a similar charity a few years ago, and I wanted to make sure the challenge was going to be big before asking for your financial help again. It will be a challenge for sure and it's going to take a lot of blood, sweat & toenails to get there, but I'll be thinking of the cause, and I'll smash it.

Even if you can't give anything, please visit, like & share Reach Out's Facebook page: facebook.com/ReachOutFMH/?__tn__=%2Cd<-R&eid=ARDGJ9yAqPt1HbU2sTE0mpvfVz14RFuukc9qCRVb9HPByLWq4qwSANw6xmXP1c3rs0LOUDw6dznkhAf7
