This year Justin Tetlow, Zack Moss, Tobit Dehnen, Tim Denby, Anastasia Voynishka and Roder Cai from The University of Sheffield Table Tennis Club are running the Sheffield Half-Marathon to raise money for First Steps Derbyshire, an award winning eating disorder charity for the north of England.
First Steps offers high quality counselling and support for people with eating disorders and their families. They offer much needed services for people going through some of the toughest times in their lives, providing services that the NHS would not otherwise have access to. First Steps mainly offers one-to-one and group counselling for individuals with mild-to-moderate eating disorders. These conditions can affect people at any time in their life; but often effect young people, which is an added reason that giving people with eating disorders access to this kind of service is important.
