Story

Thanks for visiting my JustGiving page! In April I will be running the Greater Manchester Marathon to raise money for Mind and would really appreciate anything you can give.

In August 2016 I was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. I am currently on anti-depressants as a fun side effect of this, and over the last year or so have realised that mental health is a hugely varied and misunderstood topic. Because there are only so many instagram posts I can make about raising awareness, I've decided to do something that will have a more significant impact (assuming some of you dig deep).

In the months after my diagnosis, I wasn't allowed to do much more than twenty minutes walking a day. To finish a marathon, and to raise money for a charity that is doing so much for mental health in the process, would be a massive achievement for me and hopefully will raise awareness and funds for a really important cause.
