Story

Why did I decide run 26.2 miles dressed as/carrying a Red Phonebox?

Many of us know someone in a family, a friend or colleague who has some form of mental health. Thanks to Mind people are now talking more about it and seeking help. The stigma is lifting but there is still a long way to go:

  • 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year.
  • Surprisingly, about 10% of children have a mental health problem at any one time.
  • It is estimated that approximately 450 million people worldwide have a mental health illness. 
  • There are still 1 in 3 people who have symptoms who choose not to seek help.
  • UK has one of the highest rates of self harm in Europe: 400 per 100,000 population.
  • Very grateful if you could please sponsor me for running 5hrs .54 minutes and setting a new Guinness World Record dressed as a Phonebox (the weight of a small toddler). Many thanks, Sid
