This weekend, we are so excited to be attending the TCS London Marathon!
This year we have three dedicated supporters running the 26.2 mile marathon.
Danny and Simon are two of the brilliant runners who are raising funds for Mid and North East Essex Mind along the way.
So, why would someone run a marathon?
Danny says, “I am raising money for the most important charity I feel there is out there, these guys do an amazing job to help spread awareness and save lives.”

Simon is taking on the marathon in memory of his friend Paul. And he’s doing it even after having to undergo back surgery earlier this year.
Simon says, “The donations coming in already are already giving me a massive boost and I thank you all. We all loved Paul who couldn’t? And doing this is my small way of showing the love.”
