"When I speak about mental health at work, I get many people share with me their experience and most people will have been affected by it in some way."

Gerry, running New York Marathon 2018

"We all know someone who has (or is still) dealing with mental health challenges.  It can happen to anyone for any reason, or for no reason at all."

Joanne, running New York Marathon 2018

"What would you march in the streets for? I would march for increased mental health education, funding tools for suicide prevention, and helping people live a life which is filled with courage, love and is true to their values."

Maysie, running New York Marathon 2018

"I was excited at the thought of the challenge, of an inspiration to help me get my life back on track, and above all the chance to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation"
