Story

Hi guys and girls. I'm going to be competing in Ironman Sweden (a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run triathlon) in August 2016, to raise money for the Maytree Respite Centre. 

I have lived my whole life dealing with acute depression and poor mental health. My experience at the Maytree is one of the things I credit for me still being alive today, and with the plan to do an Ironman in 2016 I thought it was time for me to give something back for that. 

The Maytree is entirely run on donations and mainly staffed by volunteers - every penny really does make a difference. 100% of the money you donate will be going to them. 

Feel free to take a look at my training/mental health blog for more info: https://halfrust.wordpress.com
