YoungMinds fundraiser clare forrest standing in front of a wooden fence

London Marathon 2021 Team Member she/her Clare Forrest

I have enjoyed running for years but never actually thought I would complete a marathon! However, in 2017 I lost my father-in-law when he took his own life after struggling for years with his mental health. I wanted to do something to help others in a similar situation, so they could reach out and get the help they so desperately need.

As I’m now in my 40th year, the 40th London Marathon seemed the perfect opportunity to raise money, and being a school teacher, YoungMinds was the perfect charity!

Mental health is becoming more prominent in the media but the work of charities like YoungMinds is vital and they need our support now. Please help me to help them!
