Avril goes the extra mile for mental health support
The spring sunshine is a great motivation to get outdoors, but even snow and storm didn't stop amazing supporter Avril McCann, who has challenged herself to run 50 miles in February and raise hundreds of pounds for Norfolk and Waveney Mind.

Avril said: "Having spent nearly the entirety of my teenage years into early adulthood battling with anxiety and depression, services such as Norfolk and Waveney Mind have provided expert advice, relief and support for myself and my friends during particularly overwhelming, grief-stricken and distressing chapters of our lives."

Avril's achievement is even more impressive as she only started running in December 2020.

She said: "For me, this has been just as much a physical challenge as a mental one. Running has become a life saver during the last few months, and I am so glad to have such a healthy habit (long fought mind you), built into my routine. Even Storm Darcy couldn’t stop me!"

Avril has already raised an amazing £625 which will help us ensure nobody has to face poor mental health alone.
