I have recently been through a very unsettled period where I have had mental health issues. This has impacted on all aspects of my life and has affected the lives of my family, friends, colleagues and the children that I teach (I am a 6th form teacher).

I want to fundraise using the Dusk till Dawn event as it is an event that I haven't done before which is a 12 hour running challenge where the aim is to do as many 5k laps of Manvers Lake in Wath (my home town) as you can do as many miles as you want to within the time limit. I have chosen this event as running has had a good and a bad impact on my mental health and I want to use it for something positive.

I will not be having a distance target for the event as I don't want to put pressure on myself. Liam Russell
