I was hoping people may help me celebrate turning 40 by sponsoring me to run 40 miles this August.

I will also be setting up and taking part in a 4 hills running challenge with my running club this August as part of the fundraising - each member of a team of 4 will run at least 1 hill each, each hill/person, will be £2.50 donation, so £10 per team.

We all know how important exercise and activity is for coping with and supporting mental health, so I thought this charity was a perfect choice to start my 40's off on a positive.
