Abby Kay is raising money for SPARC - Stockport Progress & Recovery Centre

Abby's Half Marathon

Event date: 29th May 2016

My story

I never thought I would be running a half marathon, however if there was ever a time to push myself in order to raise awareness and support for mental health issues it is now.

This is following the recent loss of my best friends brother Adam Bramwell who took his own life following a battle with mental health difficulties.

Working in mental health is my profession and I am very much aware of the struggles and torment individuals can endure, however nothing can prepare you for the shock of losing someone so close to home. The tragic loss of Adam has opened my eyes to the extent of mental health difficulties and how such issues can often be masked. This highlights the importance of working together to increase awareness and reducing the stigma associated with mental health. Mental health is very common and 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.

I am raising money to support Stockport Progress and Recovery Centre (SPARC), who work in alliance with Stockport and District Mind. As a former volunteer and employee, SPARC has a special place in my heart, and it is due to their continued support that I work in this field and I am pursuing my career that I am passionate about. SPARC is an amazing place that has been providing support to people for years and has a commitment to enabling and empowering individuals with enduring mental health difficulties. I have witnessed people overcome and manage mental illness with the support of SPARC, and it has played a massive part in enhancing the lives of so many. SPARC provides a safe place for people to go and socialise, take part in activities and to continue to work towards their goals.

I am completing this run with my best friends Emma Bramwell and Natalie McGuire and together we will get through this! I would like to thank you for your support and all donations will be extremely appreciated.
