Thank you for visiting my page. I'm taking on this amazing challenge in support of Mind.

The original London Marathon date of 26th April has been postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak. It is now due to take place on 3rd October, and I really do hope it goes ahead this time.

Even though I am not a huge fan of road running, I am really looking forward to it - it's such a huge event and a wonderful cause to support!

In meantime, to keep up my fitness and motivation, I did a marathon over six days in April (sticking to lockdown exercise rules), 100km of running in April, taking on 80km indoor cycling challenge against my manager in May, and who knows what will be next...

Who are Mind?

'We're Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We're here for you. Today. Now. Whether you're stressed, depressed or in crisis. We'll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.

We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.'

I'm raising funds to support the important work Mind does and to allow them to continue to be there for everyone who needs them. Please donate if you can.

This is what your donation could do:

£10 could allow Mind to send essential information booklets about mental health to 40 people.

£40 could pay for 28 people to campaign for change on Mind's behalf.

£70 could keep Mind's online community, Elefriends, open and safe for two hours.

£120 could offer a lifeline to eight people in desperate need of support from Mind legal line.

£200 could help Mind keep their Infoline open for 1 hour, helping 35 people.

£300 could support a young person bereaved by suicide to access 1:1 and group support.

£550 could provide five people struggling with their mental health a place in a 10-week wellbeing group with team sports and cookery.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for donating. Your support is hugely appreciated.
