The Great North Run and Mermaids

I am thrilled to announce that in September, I will be running the Great North Run for Mermaids!

Every young person deserves to grow up in an environment where they can be their true selves. I am supporting Mermaids because of the vital work they do to make this a reality for young gender-diverse people in the UK.

Unfortunately there is a large hate campaign against the trans and non-binary community and this can only be increasing the anxiety that young gender-diverse people are experiencing. Let’s be a light shining through that hate and show that we are here for them.

To help persuade you to part with your hard-earned cash, I will be live-streaming during some of my training runs later in the year to talk about how the training is going, why I’m running for Mermaids & some science facts too!
