“1 in 5 of us will experience mental illness in our life, yet not many of us talk about it when we are not doing well. I am running in support of the Mental Health Foundation and the work they do to increase awareness, end discrimination, and advocate on behalf of mental health service users.”
Mark, running the Auckland Marathon 2017 for the MHF.
