Story

Hello and welcome to our fundraising page!

The most important question - why Mind? Well, now for the honest bit. I am currently battling severe anxiety and depression, and have been for about 8 years now. I have a rather wonderful life, with a loving family, devoted girlfriend, and supportive friends, yet I am still struggling. You see, mental illness doesn't discriminate - it can happen to anyone. It is for this reason that I am determined to take on my mental illness. It is for this reason that I have set myself the target of running a marathon. I can't do either of these things on my own, which is why I have asked Noel to run with me. 

By raising money for Mind they can provide support for more people to cope with their mental illness.

So here we are, both training away, getting our lunge on, determined to run our marathon together. Raising money for Mind will allow them to support more people like myself who urgently need help, so please be as generous as you can.

Thank you x
