Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I took up running in March 2019 in an attempt to lose some weight and improve my general health and fitness. While I started running for my physical health, an extra bonus has been the improvement to my general mood. As someone who has struggled with mental health issues for over 30 years, this has, perhaps, been the greatest benefit of taking up this simple, but (for me at least) highly effective activity.

At any time, one in six adults has a mental health condition and one in 100 has a severe mental illness. People with mental ill health die younger, and a greater proportion have poor physical health compared to the general population.

With that in mind, I'm running as many miles as I can to support SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) in order to raise as much money as possible and I would be so grateful if you could take the time to sponsor me to help a cause that is particularly important to me. In 2021 I managed just over 1,300 miles and this year I’m aiming to go even further.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I'd really appreciate it if you could support my efforts in aid of a cause that means so much to me.
