Holly ran the Bristol 10k and said;
I'm really pleased to hear that the money I've raised will go some way towards making a difference. It's been exciting to tick off a personal goal (before I'm 40 next year!) and Rethink Mental Illness is a very deserving charity.
If you decide to pick your own race and join the Rethink Mental Illness team expect to receive:
lots of training and fundraising advice
a free running vest
We will provide information and support in the run up to your event
Have a look at our top tips page to get your fundraising started

If this is something that you have personal experience of- let us know by getting in touch on the email above and help us to inspire others to do the same.
