Greater Manchester Run
Our Assistant Manager and Permanent Consultant Johanna Bretherton is running the 10k Greater Manchester Run on 20th May, here is her story;
Hey guys! Well it’s been a long LONG time since I last did the Great Manchester 10K but I’ve dusted off my “running shoes” and decided to run it on the 20th May this year for the Charity Mind. I’ve chosen to fundraise for this Charity as I was staggered to learn that 1 in 4 of us will suffer from a mental health problem at some point in our lives. There are so many misconceptions and stigma surrounding mental health that leaves people feeling embarrassed, isolated, ashamed and somehow to blame for feeling how they do which can be completely paralyzing to that individual. Nobody who has a “busy mind” should feel frightened to voice this and seek the help they need whether this be on a more formal or informal basis. So anything I can do and any pennies/pounds I can raise to help this cause I will. If anybody would like to sponsor me I would be so grateful but completely understand we all have charities close to our hearts. Thanks everyone!
