Event description

Description

I want to promote people sharing their mental health experiences and get people talking, breaking the stigma!!

I am passionate about mental health and as a sufferer myself, understand the benefits of sharing with others, being honest with yourself and being honest with those around you.

Crochet / crafts has been one of my main coping strategies and has allowed me to make new friends whilst giving myself challenges and goals to achieve. I have felt more worthy from reactions to my work and have been proud of my local craft group that I founded in 2015 Exmouth Crafty Crafters.

in 2018, I founded Rainbow Arch of Mind promoting mental health awareness and am currently in the process of creating the website which will include a database of collated anonymous experiences and coping strategies that people can reference to.

Due to not having a body that will allow me to run past 1.6 miles...I have decided to raise funds for mental health related charities by attempting a marathon in crochet!

This will be a new world record for the Guinness book of records so they have stated that I need to crochet continuously for over 24 hours with a 5 minute rest break per hour!

I have recently been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my hands and fingers so this challenge has become a lot more complicated than originally planned back in February this year!

Please try to donate if you can and support me with this crazy challenge.

Motivation messages and comments would be amazing and sharing this page would be greatly appreciated.

Please come along and support.

Thank you so much for reading!
