Mentally Fit York Yorkshire Marathon Lgbt+ 5 weeks challenge

5 Weeks' challenge

Please sponsor my 5 weeks' challenge to go from 45 miles a week up to 95 miles a week and finish with a great community of people to run the Yorkshire Marathon on the 16th of October in the amazing city of York and beyond. I believe that health starts with being in a loving and supportive environment. Making access to mental health services easier contributes to the overall well being of a society as a whole. 


I'm taking on the Yorkshire Marathon  to help to transform mental health by raising funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York. Mental ill-health doesn't discriminate and whether we're experts in mental health or not, we should all be able to feel safe and supported in talking to each other about our mental health.So together with a great community of people I'm going to run the Yorkshire Marathon on the 16th October around the amazing city of York! 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 the run and the cause you can do so here)
