Holly Humberstone (22) has never considered herself to be much of a runner, but on Sunday 7 April 2024 she will be joining thousands of other brave runners taking part in the Brighton Marathon. She will be running to raise awareness of the mental health charity, Mind and the work they do to support people living with mental health issues in the UK.
Having struggled with her own mental health and spurred on by a desire to help others, Holly didn’t hesitate to sign up for the marathon when she saw that Mind were looking for runners.
When Holly isn't training for the the marathon, she dedicates her time to studying classical singing at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
Holly is hoping to raise £1,500 for Mind and is grateful for any donations.
