Weʼre raising £10,000 to Raise awareness of Mental Health and support The Lisa Lowe Centre and Parent2Parent
- Isle of Man
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I would like to raise money for The Lisa Lowe Centre and Parent2Parent because mental health has played a huge part in my life, being surrounded by people who have suffered including myself. Further to this, my second aim is to also help reduce the 'stigma' that surrounds mental health and raise awareness so that it can be spoken about in a more comfortable manner; meaning people don't have to be 'alone' suffering.
During my battle with mental health, these two charities really helped me to see the light at the end of the seemingly endless tunnel. Due to this, it is now my turn to return the favour so that they can help more people like me.
I plan to complete three laps of the Isle of Man on bike within 24 hours which, as far as I am aware, has never been completed before. This will cover approximately 240 miles and 21,843 feet of climbing
The ride can be viewed here.
I will be completing the challenge on the 20th July 2018.
