Thank you for taking the time to visit my donation page for Best Beginnings. So why I am I running 100k...

My Dad sadly took his own life when I was a teenager and I went on to have my own mental health problems in my early 20s, but unlike my Dad, I was very lucky to get the right help. Why should it come down to luck?!

When a close friend of mine took her life due to postnatal depression in 2016 I knew I had to do something in her memory but also do my small bit to help reduce the stigma associated with mental health.

That is why the preventative work that Best Beginnings are doing to raise awareness, education and supporting families impacted by mental health problems is so important.

I will be taking on the challenge of running the Race to The Stones Ultra 100k marathon for the fantastic charity Best Beginnings.

Please give whatever you can afford to Best Beginnings to ensure that every kid gets the best possible start in life. If parents are struggling with depressions or other mental health-related issues, they are here to provide tools, expertise, resources to help people through it.
