Debbie's run from West to East 2021

Over the past 4 years, I have got myself into running to try and overcome my mental health illnesses, depression and anxiety.  To begin with I've tried a variety of medication to help treat my conditions. Unfortunately, the medication I was taking had been ineffective.
The only treatment which did work affectively was going outdoors, running. Setting monthly targets and milestones to achieve,  has resulted to boost my self-esteem and confidence.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been wanting to run from one side of the country to the other as a challenge. It would only make sense to use this challenge to raise money for Mind, a mental health charity. They are an organisation who are there to make sure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn to for advice and support.

During this difficult time, I have come across people in my job who are experiencing a mental health illness. So many people are feeling depressed, anxious and/or stressed. 
I’m raising money in aid of Mind, making awareness for those who may not know who to turn to when seeking support for their mental state of mind.
My challenge will begin on Monday 21st June 2021. Starting from Aberystwyth war memorial and finishing at Southwold pier. Completing in 14 days whilst having pit stops in between. My partner Steven will be driving a campervan for me to revive my energy. Also, I shall be having more supporters running along side me halfway through my challenge to keep me motivated. So if you would like to get involved please get in touch.

Do you want to join me in making a difference? Let’s raise money for Mind (NAMH) as every donation will count. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
