Having raised £1k for Mind by doing the Henley Half Marathon, I wanted to up the ante and applied to run the London Marathon on their behalf.
To my horror, they've given me a place!!!
Mental health is extremely important and I can guarantee that if it doesn't directly affect you, someone you know may be suffering in silence with anxiety, depression or low self-esteem, all of which can result in suicide. - Something I've seen first-hand.
I'm no psychotherapist but I want to help and that's why I'm running all these miles for Mind - they're a fantastic charity that are helping millions of people with various mental health issues.
Please donate generously to help Mind continue to do a wonderful job in helping those around us all that are suffering.
