Mental health occurs in 1 in every 4 people and it's charities like Hectors House that help people talk about these issues and help them know they aren't alone. Through recent experiences close to home, I know it is hard for some people to reach out, by raising money, it may lead to that extra minute of help that may save someone's life.
Whether you can donate a pound or a thousand, it all helps and I can't thank you enough. I don't have a specific amount to raise, I have paid for these marathons and travel by myself and all this money will go to the charity.
About the Charity:
Hector Stringer took his life at the tender age of 18. He didn't realise that things can and do get better and he didn't reach out to his friends and family to ask for help when he needed it most. We believe that suicide can be prevented, if we all realise that mental health is fluid, that you can get help, you are not alone, people do care. We are raising money so that hopefully, we can prevent suicide, through increased awareness, education and support.
