“This will hopefully create a more therapeutic and calming environment for the young people that come through its doors.

“The average Length of stay for a young person within a mental health hospital is 50 day,s so I thought as it is Mental health awareness week let’s try and raise some money to help make that journey as easy as possible!”

Mental health awareness week this year focussed on body image – how we feel and think about our bodies, so I felt I would set myself a challenge to show how amazing our bodies can be.

“As someone who has struggled and struggles to be positive about my body I feel it’s important to show the young people I work with how to be kind to yourself and be proud of what our bodies can do… so I thought lets’ do 50 km a day for 50 days.”
