Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

You may ask, why am I running a very long way to raise money for OCD Action?

Those who know me know that OCD Action is so important to me because my daughter Lauren was diagnosed with severe OCD just after her 11th birthday.  Her condition became so severe that she had to be hospitalized for 9 very long months.  Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a horrendously debilitating condition, often misunderstood and frequently misdiagnosed.   Without OCD Action I truly believe Lauren wouldn't be where she is now on her journey to recovery.

 

I am not a runner but for this I would run to the ends of the earth - and I'm asking you to sponsor me to make it worthwhile!  Please give what you can.
