My son Sam age 23 

died in Aug 2015 by suicide. I started running shortly after in October 2015 to help me cope with the unbearable  pain of grief . Running has helped me so much and I have made some fantastic running friends along the way ( both local and virtual ) . 

I want to raise money for CALM  by running the Great North Run  this year as they are dedicated to preventing male suicide .. The biggest single killer of men aged 20 to 45. 

I want this journey to follow on from my running last year  and to continue  to raise money and awareness and get people talking about suicide and reduce the stigma . 

Thanks for reading
