Tom's campaign for Cornwall Mind

My name is Tom Hands and I am an 18 year old from Cornwall, I will be running 52 miles in 48 hours for Mind Cornwall which is a charity for Mental Health. As you are aware there is a huge issue at the moment which is Covid-19 and this is having a detrimental effect on the mental health of a lot of people.  

This has affected both myself and people close to me greatly over the past few months and I want to find a way to help both those people close to me along with the people in Cornwall who I know are also suffering with poor mental health.  

I have chosen this charity as it targets my county and I feel like Cornwall often gets overlooked. Help is needed for individuals, in particular young people like myself and by raising money this will allow support to be more accessible.  

I am going to run 52 miles to represent the distance to my nearest MIND Centre. This run will start on the 3rd of July at 6pm and I will run 4 miles every 4 hours until my final run starts at 6pm on the 5th of July which equates to 13 x 4 mile runs.

I will post regular updates of my journey and each of the 13 stages towards my goal. You will be able to follow this journey on my Instagram story starting at 6pm on the 3rd of July. My Instagram is tomhandzz

All support and donations will be greatly appreciated,

Many thanks,

Tom Hands
