Yes, I will run the marathon anyway, but please still donate to this worthy cause!

Mental Health issues affect a huge number of people today, from all walks of life. It's often a hidden problem - either the people with problems exclude themselves or are excluded from the circles that you move in, or perhaps someone that you know has problems that they hide away and find difficult to find help for.

People who I have known in my life have been in this situation and tragically several people are no longer with us today as a result. This collection is partly in tribute to those people - Briney, Jay, & Adrian. And the father-in-law that I never met, Svante.

Please give generously to support a charity that provides help for people who need it and a voice at the end of the line when times are hard.

(p.s. for friends in the UK, there's no extra charges for using a UK debit/credit card, other than for a 'regular' foreign transaction.)

(And finally, as for giving me some extra motivation to complete the marathon? Yep, it will do that too. It doesn't matter how fast you run the marathon, the last few miles are always going to be tough, and knowing that people have donated their money to this good cause will help me along the way!)

    I want to say thank you to all donors. Your donations help us save lives in our Suicide Hotline (among other things). That's truly something special!

    We wouldn't be doing, what we're doing without you.

    Thank You!
    Lovisa, Mind
