Story

Thank you for visiting my JustGiving page. Rape is a crime that destroys lives and can lead to mental illness, post traumatic stress, and even suicide. Not only do women (and men) who have been raped have to deal with the mental and emotional consequences, they also have to contend with the stigma, and it a crime where the victim often gets blamed. 

That is why I am choosing to speak out - to end the stigma and to encourage survivors to use their voice. I also want to raise essential funds for Rape Crisis England and Wales, because funding for survivors is so low, and is being cut all the time. The charity provides help and advice through their helpline, counselling services and supporting survivors in court. Without this crucial help survivors would be left to fend for themselves.

This is also a real personal challenge for me - I have never ran before, have previously been fearful of running, and told myself I couldn't do it, and have back injury and trapped nerve. but I will not be stopped!!!

Donating to me through JustGiving is really easy, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe - JustGiving will never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity.
