Sarah, one of our 2018 Big Fun Run runners, explains why the event was such an amazing experience for her:

"The run alone was such a big deal for me to go through with, due to my high levels of anxiety, but despite that I popped my headphones in and remembered why I was there. I had my family with me cheering me on too which helped. I also have had bipolar disorder since the age of 17, but with medication, therapies and support, it is getting increasingly better. But I just want people with any mental health problem to know that no matter what struggles they are going through, things can get better. I am proof of this, having reached rock bottom, then built everything back up again. The mind is powerful and endorphins are real! Something I struggle with is self-image, and I cannot express how proud I am of myself. I can't believe I went and I actually did it. What a memorable, enjoyable and proud day for me!"
