Mind Charity: 27 miles in (14 days)


Hi!

I wanted to let you know that this March, I'm participating in Mind's 27 27 Challenge: running/walking 27 miles in 27 days. I've started a little late, so I'm doing it in 14 instead. 

I'm running in solidarity of the 27% of students who report a mental health problem whilst at university. More students are experiencing mental health problems than ever before, especially with lockdown. The number of students reporting a mental health issue is five times greater today than it was ten years ago, while the number of students dropping out because of mental health problems has trebled.

I understand what it's like having to drop out of school because of mental health. In my time off, I began to write, and here I am today...I have survived the darkest moments of my life and am continuing to do so, no matter what battle I have to fight; I'm doing this for everyone who is still finding their way out of the darkness.

If you want to check up on how I'm doing, here's a link to my fundraising page:

Of course, if you'd like to very kindly make a donation, I would be so grateful and I hope I can make you proud whilst I complete the challenge.

If you'd like to learn a little more about Mind, and just what they do, visit their website.

Thank you so much in advance.

Love, Charlotte
