Charity events

[tweetmeme source=”Life_With_DID”]

Well my justgiving page closed the other day for my 2 peak challenge. I raised £25 for rethink… I hiked up and dwon Ben Nevis (1344m), Scafell Pike (977m), and Snowdon (1085m) in a single 24 hours a total of 27.5 miles (which may nto be mch but this was on mountains 😛 and with traveling between them in between).

 

My next “mission” is taking place on the 5th of December and is to run 5km while wearing a santa suit. This time the money is going to War Child – my justgiving page is here. I’m hoping that I’ve learnt lessons from my Rethink fundraising and so can make a larger success of this one (not that I am forgetting about Rethink, just got a few events coming up before I have another go at fundraising for them again)

 

I am also in the process of planning to do some fundraising for ECPAT, which is a global network of organisations and individuals working together for the elimination of child prostitution, child pornography and the trafficking of children for sexual purposes. I just haven’t worked out what to do yet… I’m open to suggestions though 🙂

Rethink is an amazing charity, which works to help everyone affected by severe mental illness recover a better quality of life. As a person with PTSD and dissociaitive identity disorder I value highly their work, esspecially their anti-stigma camapains, in supporting those with mental illness and making it so that we are treated as equal citizens.

I chose the 3 peaks challange as before my mental health declined hiking and climbing where 2 passions of mine. Now, however, I fnd the very consept of going outside to go shopping or even to collect the post a struggle. So in August I shall be climbing 3 peaks (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) within 24 hours
