Dan and Eddie complete the London Marathon

On Sunday 28th April Dan and Eddie took on the challenge of the London Marathon. Both runners had their own reasons for wanting to support HEH Mind and being part of the 42,436 people who completed the Marathon.

Dan stated “We all face our inner demons at some stage of life and as many as 1 in 4 suffer from some form of mental illness. Unlike many other illnesses those of the mind cannot be seen and are often misunderstood or attached to a stigma.”

Eddie had told us “I’m glad I’m supporting such an amazing cause and will try and do you guys proud“. We can positively say you made us proud and have done something amazing.

We hope both Dan and Eddie have rested up and taken a moment to reflect on how amazing their achievement is. Thank you both for your support.

Our staff, volunteers and Ambassadors all started conversations, destigmatised mental health and aimed to increase awareness of local services. Thank you to everyone that talked to us and shared their experiences. If you did not speak to our team, but would like to find out more you can visit our website (easthantsmind.org) or our social media channels.

We look forward to the next national campaign, which is World Mental Health Day on 10 October. If you would like to get involved you can contact the team by emailing [email protected]
