Becoming a runner for Mind - Sophie's story

As someone with Bipolar Disorder, fundraising for Mind has been an incredible experience. I am lucky to be a member of such a wonderful running family – I’ve never met such an inspiring and supportive group.

Read Sophie's story

At the age of 54, with no previous running experience, I signed up for my very first 10k. I wore my Mind vest with pride and ran every step with Sam in my heart. I hope that my contribution may help someone else’s loved one.
