John's Twenty by 2020
Aiming to complete 20 separate challenges by 2020 for Mind - The Mental Health Charity because there is a need to keep building awareness
We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’re here for you. Today. Now. Whether you’re stressed, depressed or in crisis. We’ll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.
Charity Registration No. 219830
I am working towards raising awareness of what is becoming an epidemic in the UK and helping those suffering with mental health issues.
I am aiming to take on 20 different challenges by the end of 2020 which will hopefully raise funds for the charity to support those in need.
#1 challenge: taking part in the BFC Runaway challenge on the 26th Feb - Newcastle v Burnley - running on day 3 on the way to St.James's Park - COMPLETE! 20 miles covered.
#2 challenge : Sheffield half-marathon - April
#3 challenge : Tiger Trail Race - May
#4 challenge: Totley Moor trail race - May
#5 challenge: Blackamoor race - June
#6 challenge: Yorkshire 3 Peaks - June
#7 challenge: Exterminator (sounds painful!) - Sept
#8 challenge: Yorkshire 10 miler (York) - Oct
Many more to follow and some may drop in earlier too.
It won't all be physical challenges (thankfully!), I am looking at writing some children's story books too - this project has kick-started, so I will keep you updated and where you can purchase when finished - ha ha! Might even get a tattoo, work on my pain threshold though!
Additionally, I will also be supporting Breast Cancer Care as a charity for some of these challenges as this is currently impacting a friend of mine and we need to do whatever we can to beat it.
Thanks for your time - lots of love and a kiss on both cheeks x
