The Lucy Rayner Foundation is honored to have been chosen as a charity partner for this year’s spectacular Run Reigate event which takes place on Sunday, September 19. Made up of 25+ runners, our red-jersey wearing team will be hitting the Surrey streets to raise much-needed awareness of the charity’s #runoffdpression campaign.
Physical activity is known not just to improve your physical wellbeing but is also a key factor in caring for your mental health too – which is why Run Reigate is the perfect platform from which to highlight the work of our local charity.
Amy King, Trustee of The Lucy Rayner Foundation is part of the LRF team. After taking up run-ning as a means of boosting her mental and physical health, Amy is thrilled to be putting her best foot forward in order to support such a good cause.
She says: ‘I’m running the Reigate Half Marathon 2021 for The Lucy Rayner Foundation, be-cause personally running has really helped my mental health over the last year especially it’s been my release and helped me push through barriers, I did not think I could do and has helped me regain my confidence.
‘I really want to show people if you put your mind to it, you can complete the hardest of chal-lenges and for me running is a challenge which I have been able to build on alongside my men-tal health. I want to also help raise awareness about mental health and to just talk to people along the route about their feelings and about The Lucy Rayner Foundation, how our services can support not only those who are suffering but those around them too.’
The Lucy Rayner Foundation aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression and mental health challenges, especially in young adults, and to facilitate change in the way mental health is being perceived by society.
