Marathon Runner Makes It Through The Heat and Smashes Fundraising Target!

Marathon Runner Smashes Target!

We are always so grateful to individuals that put their limits to the test in order to raise money forAndrew us at Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind and Andrew, one of our fantastic fundraisers is no exception! Andrew battled through the heat and empty water stations to complete the marathon in 6 hours and 7 minutes!


We are incredibly grateful to Andrew for choosing us as his charity to raise money for! He has doubled his target and raised an incredible £502, way above his initial target of £250 and he isn’t stopping yet! He’s already signed up to our Salford Dragon Boat Race Team Waiting List – so if you want to join Andrew’s team, get in contact with us at: fundraising [at]


Although there has been a focus over the last few years to provide more provisions to protect the health and wellbeing of our local community, more still needs to be done.


Andrew said:

“This charity is very close to my heart after losing a very close friend in 2013, and family who have also used there services Mind can really make a difference to someone who feels that they have no one to talk to about their struggles.


I would like to thank Greenfield Greyhounds and Anytime Fitness Ashton-under-Lyne for helping me train and supporting me in my quest in running the London Marathon. Thank You for taking the time to read my story."


Thank you so much Andrew for your continued support!
