YoungMinds fundraiser Nick Davies with arms crossed standing in front of a brick wall

London Marathon 2021 Team Member he/him Nick Davies

My brother, Toby, tragically took his own life in 2017, aged just 16. He had been struggling with depression and eventually couldn't cope any longer. It was only after this that my family came across YoungMinds and discovered all the amazing work they do to help support young people who are struggling with mental health issues.

I am running London Marathon in memory of Toby to raise money and awareness of Young Minds and the fantastic work they are doing to help tackle the growing problem of mental illness amongst young people. If only one person was to read my story and get the help that they deserve then the 26.2 miles of pain will be more than worth it!
