Story

Myself and Lee Vile are running 4 marathons in July to raise money for Mind charity.

The events are 4 x marathons in July:

- 03rd July - 'London Bridges' - We start in Tower Bridge and then 'zig-zag' across the London bridges all the way back to Putney then run back to North Cheam where we will finish.
- 10th July - 'Lady Kate'. -We Start in Cheam, run to Richmond Park then pick up the toe-path from Richmond, head through Kingston into Chessington then finish at Nonsuch Park.
- 17th July - 'Thames Meander' - We start running from the toe-path at Kingston Bridge, then run along the toe-path for 13.1 miles, to then turn around and come back to Kingston Bridge.
- 24th July - 'The RP Run' - We run in Richmond Park for 3.5 laps as our final marathon.

I wanted to do this event to raise money and awareness for mental health - I have seen how this is affecting so many people in the last 12-months. Before this I was one of those people who just thought Mental Health was a mindset thing that can easily be overcome by a positive book/video/seminar, but I had some serious education given to me by physically witnessing the horrible effects of mental health illness and the power of this horrible situation.

I have since completed a 4-day mental health course, so I am now a Mental health first aider, as I wanted to help as much as I possibly can to anyone that is willing to ask me for it.
I run Aquamark Cleaning, we supply window cleaning to some high-rise developments around London and England, I have a team of 22 staff and I have seen how this lockdown/Covid restrictions has affected a fair amount of my team, and other friends an family - this is why I want to do this and bring awareness to mental health.
