My name is Neil. Just a few years ago I was an obese, depressed, heavy drinker heading for an early grave - I really was a warning of how NOT to live. Having reclaimed my health (both physically and mentally) I am now on a mission to set an example to my children of what we can each achieve when we focus and how we can help others along the way.
I suspect I was just a decision or two away from having addiction own me. I came close to losing everything.
In July I will be a running a 100km NON-STOP ultra-marathon and then 2 weeks later will be joined by a team to complete a 24 hour endurance relay race.
By running in aid of Action on Addiction, I hope to help this fantastic organisation help others in their recovery. The work done by Action of Addiction has touched my heart over the last year, especially with what they have achieved by creating The Brink in Liverpool. Please support my fundraising so that more initiatives, such as dry recovery bars, can open throughout the country.
