Ashley Fundraising and Running Royal Parks Half Marathon

Ashley AugerAshley Auger is running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 12 October to raise money for Bromley & Lewisham Mind. Please do support and sponsor him on his JustGiving page.

When asked what motivated him, Ashley said,

“I am running the marathon because I wanted a challenge but then thought I didn’t want to do it for nothing, so I looked around for local charities which I wanted to help fundraise for. Bromley & Lewisham Mind was the most obvious choice for two reasons.

Firstly, I have had first hand experience of dementia and the effect it has on someones life, any charity which helps those with this condition is worth raising money for!

Secondly I feel incredibly passionately about the stigma around mental health and the lack of education and understanding around what is a very complex thing. The work done by Bromley & Lewisham Mind is fantastic in not only helping those with mental health issues understand, manage and improve their conditions but it also aims to increase the education and understanding around mental health, which I am a strong supporter of.”

Ashley is aiming to raise £150 for Bromley & Lewisham Mind. Donations can be as small as £2 so please donate and help Ashley reach his target.
