A few months ago I applied to the comms for some support for a half marathon that my son intended to run. Although he is not a member here my son has been a lifelong Ferrari enthusiast, accompanying me to numerous events and Grand Prix before marriage and kids got in the way.

The comms agreed that my son's half marathon fell within the guidelines and offered £250 sponsorship. My son duly ran the half marathon in a creditable time for a first effort of 1 hour 45 min.

He sent me this message to post here.

“Thanks very much for sponsoring my half marathon run for Mind, which I completed in 1h45. Your sponsorship also pushed me over my £1k target to reach £1200; so I am very grateful for it.

Mind helps anyone with a mental health problem with advice and support, as well as raising awareness and promoting understanding. With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem each year, it's a really worthy cause in high demand.”

Kind Regards,


Thanks to all on here for supporting my son's effort.
