Marc explains why he chose Mind your Head. “After deciding to run the London Marathon, I chose to split my fundraising between the national UK charity ‘Mind’ and the local Shetland Charity ‘Mind Your Head,’ because there is still a stigma surrounding mental health. It remains a topic which many people still find difficult to talk about openly, which is why it was important to me fundraise for these charities, particularly our local mental health charity, to support the fantastic work they already do.

Overall, I’ve managed to raise a staggering £4,025.68 in total, with £2,310.68 of that going to Mind Your Head. I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone that sponsored me… I am absolutely astounded how generous the people of Shetland are! This certainly kept me going during the tough moments of the race! Special thanks must also go to family and friends who gave their time and energy to help with my fundraising efforts, thank you all very much, it really means a lot.”
