On April 2nd, I will be running 21 kilometres in the Berlin Half-Marathon. (To date, I've never run more than 10k!)
I'm looking to raise £100 for every kilometre I will run, so £2,100 or US$ 2,600 overall.
I'm running for Strong Minds, a really effective charity that provides free talk-therapy to low-income women and adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa. More than 80% of their clients are depression free at the end of treatment.
I'd love your support in helping me reach my goal! Please give generously xo
*My company will match the first £250 raised, so we only need to get to £1,850 to reach the goal!
