Fundraising for Cornwall Mind by Tom Hands
“I will be running 52 miles in 48 hours for Cornwall Mind.
As we are all very much aware there is a huge issue right now, how Covid-19 is affecting people’s mental health. Poor mental health has affected both myself in the past and now people very close to me are struggling. I wanted to find a way to help both those people close to me along with the people in Cornwall who I know are also suffering with mental health and wellbeing difficulties.
I have chosen Cornwall Mind as my charity as it targets Cornwall and I feel like we often get overlooked. Help is needed for individuals, in particular young people like myself, and by raising money this will help to support their services and improve accessibility.
I am going to run 52 miles to represent the distance to my nearest Mind Centre. This run will start on the 3rd of July at 6pm and I will run 4 miles every 4 hours until my final run at 6pm on the 5th of July which equates to 13 x 4 mile runs. The aim is not only to raise money for this charity but also raise awareness and show people that there is a place for them to go if needed.
You will be able to follow the progress on my Instagram story @tomhandzz, starting on the 3rd of July.
All donations greatly received, thank you.”
