Our Campaign Story

ends 22 Mar 2018, 11:59 PM

One of my goals for 2018 is to run my first ever marathon and fundraise for the Mental Health Association at the same time.

I am just a 5km runner and my sister will tell you that I run slowly! I've started preparing for the big adventure and my aim is to just complete the race.

I've decided to raise money for mental health to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental health. There can be self-imposed stigma from those suffering as well as negative public perception, the public may mistakenly think those suffering are weak or that it is self inflicted. This may hinder those suffering from seeking the treatment that they need.

Mental health affects every day life such as being able to work and maintain relationships.

I've started a 20 week training programme and have signed up to do the Sundown Marathon on the 19th May.

You can follow my progress on Strava :-)
