We are running Gung Ho Leeds to raise awareness for a wonderful charity, Papyrus (Prevention of Young Suicide) - whose aim is to shatter the stigma associated with suicide. I am running with my dear friend Kate Cleal, who lost her beautiful daughter Lily on December 6th last year.
In the depths of grief Kate and her family turned to PAPYRUS for support and to learn too late how prevalent suicide was amongst the very young.
Teenage suicide is a taboo subject that needs to be brought out into the open. We want to work to remove the stigma associated with suicide. With funds and support Scotland have reduced their suicide rate by 18%. It is preventable. Your donation will help!
