I am running the Oxford half marathon and it is just over a week away on the 7th October. I am not doing this for fun; I am running the race in support of Oxfordshire Mind and to help raise as much as we can every pound raised towards this challenge will be matched, doubling your donation. They are an excellent charity who for over 50 years have made sure anyone in the area experiencing mental health problems has somewhere to turn for advice and support as well as helping to lift the taboo over mental health illnesses through public campaigns and government lobbying.
One in four of us will experience mental health issues at some point in our lives and my brother was one of those people. After struggling with mental health issues for a number of years he sadly passed away in 2013 at the young age of 34. Training has been a little inconsistent so I am going to try my best to haul my rather unfit body around the 21 km route and I hope you can give generously to support this cause.
Your donation, no matter how big or small, would be wonderful and gratefully appreciated.
Thank you for your support.
