Stuarts 100 Mile Bike Ride

Date: 30th September

Stuart - Banstead Fitness Bike Ride Sep 2019

“Mental health illnesses have become increasingly more recognized recently with it being said that 1 in 4 people will be affected in any given year.

I personally have been affected in more ways than one and so too have many people I know.

It’s so important that the charities involved in helping affected people are supported, so I am looking to do what I can to give something back and help others in similar situations to myself.”

Louis’s Wimbledon Half Marathon

Louis Brennan fundraiser

Date: 27th October

“I’m running for MIND because mental health needs to be taken as seriously as any other health condition. Thousands of people in the UK alone take their own life every year. THOUSANDS. With the proper funding, awareness and – most importantly – conversation, we can show everyone that asking for help with a mental health issue is no different to asking for antibiotics for an infection.”
