On the 27th/28th of July 2019 Adam and I are attempting to run/trek the South Downs Way which stretches 100 miles from Eastbourne to Winchester in under 30 hours. It would usually take anything from 6-10 days. We are doing this to raise money and awareness for the charity The Youth Counselling Project who help children with mental health.
In the UK, 80,000 children and young people suffer from severe depression, 8,000 of them are under ten years old.
The number of cases of children being admitted to hospital with self-harm has dramatically risen by 70% in the past ten years.
The Youth Counselling Project has been set up to provide counselling in schools in response to the growing number of children suffering from
low mood, anxiety and self-harm.
