Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am running every day in June to celebrate being 65 on 26/06/19. The twist is that I will run the distance in miles of the day's number. 1st of June will be hard for me only running 1 mile. 30th June will be even harder running 30 miles especially as I will have run 29 miles the day before that an 28 before that etc. So the total miles in the month will be 465

I was born on a Saturday and Saturday is parkrun day so I will be including parkrun in the mix somehow.There are 5 Saturdays in June this year.

I suffer from depression so know how poor mental health care is in this country. If I have a broken leg or pneumonia it is easy and quick to get things sorted. If your mind is the problem it is hard to get help. Waiting lists are not good when you are having suicidal thoughts. 

Mind helps people with all sorts of mental problems, your donation will help them reach more people in need.


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.
