I'm taking part in York's Marathon Month 2023 to help raise funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York.
In the UK, up to one in four adults and one in ten children experience mental health issues. Mental health issues do not discriminate and everyone should have access to the free, personal and inclusive help they need regardless of their position.
I aim to walk at the very least one Marathon in the countryside around York during October. This will be evidenced by a GPS tracker, pedometer and lots of pictures!
Please donate anything you can to help me reach my target and improve mental health in York and beyond! More about York's Marathon Month and the cause can be found here.
