‘Why I’m doing RED January in 2020,’ REDer Mandy

'I know that when I’m feeling less than 100%, a run, or walk or exercise session will make me feel a million times better and set me up for the day. RED January promotes the positive effects of exercise and feeds right back into the very charity that helped me to be who I am today.’
