Here's why Lorraine is determined to push her boundaries for YoungMinds:
For many years I have worked with children and seen what impact mental health has on the day to day lives of not only the child but those around them. I would also like to see the stigma of mental health issues diminish and people gain a greater understanding of the impact it has and would also like to see it talked about more and recognised. And support be given to help the child get the best outcomes and live life to the full.
I wanted to do this by pushing my own boundaries and going out of my comfort zone to achieve getting around the course in a decent time. The first aim is to run the London marathon and do other fund raising events between now and the end 2017 and raise as much money as possible. Training started in November 2017 and is hard going but I am determined to do it how ever hard.
