Michael's fundraiser for The Hike With Mike Foundation

Fundraising for The Hike With Mike Foundation
raised of £5,000 target
JOGLE - running 946 miles via the three highest peaks
We provide immediate funded counselling to support those battling mental illness


In 2024 I am planning to run John O'Groats to Land's End via the Three Peaks, roughly 1000 miles.

Many people start fundraising or doing crazy challenges in memory of losing a loved one or even if they themselves are faced with a terminal diagnosis. I want to complete this extremely difficult challenge while my loved ones are still here, to celebrate the achievement with them (if I can complete it).

I will be running for two charities: The Hike With Mike Foundation & Lymphoma Action. Both charities I have personal connections with.

Hike With Mike is a charity set up by a good friend who lost two of his close friends through suicide during lock down; one who took his own life while being on the NHS waiting list. Mike's charity work can now source and fund 6 private counselling sessions within 24 hours of getting in touch with him.

My mum was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma three years ago. Chemo and radiotherapy were effective but follicular lymphoma usually comes back and mum will need more treatment at some point. Not everyone is as as fortunate as me and my family, so I want to do all I can to help those people.

Please share and re-post to spread the word on these amazing charities and to help raise as much money as I can.

About the charity

Everyday in the UK, 18 people take their own life. That's 18 people who feel their only option is to no longer carry on. Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 45. Waiting lists with the NHS are up to 6 months, many don't have this long to wait so we provide funded counselling within 24 hrs
