Thank you for looking at my fundraising page.

As I was born and raised in Sheffield, I thought it would be rude not to run a Half Marathon in my home city supporting a local charity, Sheffield Mind.

Sheffield Mind works with and supports people with Mental Health. I'm sure we all know someone who suffers or has suffered with their mental health and how important it is for those people to get help.
Sheffield Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem and they campaign to improve services, raise awareness, and promote understanding.

The services they provide range from counselling and therapy support including art, bereavement, talking, domestic abuse as well as practical and emotional support with loneliness, hoarding, accessing local support services, anger management, upskilling and confidence building.

Peer Support Groups are also held during the week providing a safe, welcoming, and warm space for people to meet, socialise and get support from peers and staff. All welcome to pop in, a cuppa and biscuits are always available.

As you can see Sheffield Mind does a lot of wonderful and varied work for the residents of Sheffield to help with their mental health and that’s why I am raising funds for them.

Please help me raise as much as I can for this very essential service. By you supporting me it will empower me get up those hills and get to the finish line knowing I have raised lots of money for a great cause.

Thank you,
Jude
