Hey Guys,
Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page. ReachOut.com (Inspire Ireland Foundation) is a very worthy cause and I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds for this charity.

THE CHALLENGE: Completion of 20 marathons in 2012. The first is the West of Ireland series marathon (Connemara) on March 10th, and the final marathon will be the 'Lock Up the Year Marathon' (Kinnegad to Leixlip) on New Year's Eve. ALL FUNDS RAISED WILL BE USED FOR REACHOUT.COM . I am using my own money to fund the actual marathons. I will be publishing regular updates on the challenge as the weeks and months progress from my website at http://www.runningforreachout.ie

THE CAUSE: ReachOut.com is a service dedicated providing quality assured mental health information for young people. It highlights inspiring real life stories by young people to help other young people get through tough times. ReachOut.com also provides information about other services that can provide help with mental health issues. http://www.inspireireland.ie/about-us/ and http://ie.reachout.com .

Research shows:
1. 50% of all mental disorders have their onset by age 14, and 75% by mid 20s. *Kessler et al.,2005
2. 74% of respondents to a ReachOut.com survey reported mild, moderate or severe levels of psychological distress;
3. 91% of people surveyed agreed that “anyone can experience a mental health problem”; yet 59% of young people \\\"wouldn\\\'t want other people to know\\\" if they had a mental health problem.

HOW TO DONATE: Use the \\\"sponsor me now\\\" button below via credit or debit card. Your transaction on the mycharity.ie website is very secure. You will receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your support acknowledging the amount of your donation. EVERY DONATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED no matter what the amount.

Many thanks in advance for your support!
