Story

On the 17th June, I will be running the length of the UK, from the most northern point of Scotland to the most southern tip of England. Totalling 1,302.23 KM, averaging 80km a day. Finishing the 1st July.

I have several people close to me that have been/are being affected by eating disorders, and so I know first-hand the support network necessary to guide people through these disorders.

I am fundraising for Beat, the UK's eating disorder charity. Beat supports anyone with an eating disorder, their friends and family, as well as professionals working with or worried about an individual in their care.

These serious mental illnesses include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. 1.25 million people in the UK have a diagnosed eating disorder. They affect people of all ages and backgrounds, and up to one in four sufferers are male. Eating disorders cost the UK's economy £16.8 billion each year.
