My breast cancer is in remission and I'm looking forward to regaining my fitness and seize opportunities that I missed out on during chemo. To do this for a good cause is just another great incentive! To that end, I'm taking part in York's Marathon Month 2023 to help to transform mental health by raising funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York.
Together with a great community of people I'm going to complete a virtual marathon in the month of October...one kilometer at a time! Please donate anything you can to help my target and improve mental health in York and beyond! :) (P.S. If you want to find out more about York's Marathon Month and the cause you can do so here).
about mentally fit york
My marathon will be in aid of Mentally Fit York, which will promote good mental health on a local, national and international scale. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as 24/7 mental health support for York students and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.
Your support may also go towards providing suicide prevention training, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships or it could contribute to a range of other initiatives which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
