More than one in seven young people are currently experiencing mental health issues and everyone knows someone who has needed help. I'm running the half marathon to raise money for The Black Dog Institute, who do amazing work in this space. Mental health and sexuality are topics people really struggle to talk about. Breaking down these taboos and opening up to each other gives hope to people going through really difficult times. I've been very lucky with the love and support of family and friends, but wonderful people like The Black Dog Institute do amazing things and need our help. This is a tough year for many people, so please give them some financial love. I'm a pretty crappy runner with a history of asthma and shitty mental health. It'd be awesome if I could: a) finish the race b) finish the race in under two hours!! (lol m8) The more you give, the faster I run* Please chip in a few dollars or share the donation page to the most bourgeois people you can find ;-) *This is a lie.
