PTSD UK is the only UK charity dedicated to the education about and awareness raising of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, it's causes, symptoms & the treatments available - no matter the trauma that caused it.Our mission is to provide support and information for anyone affected by PTSD (and their friends and family). We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of the condition and treatments available.
Charity I'm running for PTSD UK. I have PTSD myself and its taken a few years to really understand the condition, but it is still an ongoing process. It would mean the world to me and I'm sure other families affected if you could show your support by donating what you can. PTSD is a missunderstood condition usually only assosiated with soldiers who have experienced trauma at war. However it can effect any one who has experienced trauma caused by abuse and neglect, witnessing death, serious injury childhood trauma and many more expeiences.
I've chosen PTSD UK to try and support a smaller and the only charity to support the wider range of PTSD suffers. I'd love it if by doing this run and fundraising it creates a change in the perception, even if just on a smaller scale of the condition of PTSD and raise some money to support those and their families who's lives are effected daily by PTSD.
It's going to be an extreme physcial challange cause the only time I run is usually to the bar for last orders, so I'd really appriciate anyone's support :D
