Jim Malbon successfully completed the Brighton marathon for APP. Warm thanks go to him for his valiant efforts – especially after hitting the “Wall” way before the finish line. He has raised a magnificent sum for our vital work and we think looks pretty good in our APP vest too!
Robin Hamilton is running the Madrid Marathon for us at the end of this month; again we are greatly indebted to him for this. We wish Robin well and hope the weather is not too hot for him.
The sums raised by Jim and Robin will prove invaluable in setting up our UK wide Peer Support networks and information banks – as well as in facilitating research – into this saddest of serious postnatal mental illnesses which can strike any mother, often “out of the blue”.
(We have so many sporty partners and Friends of APP that we’ll soon be able to produce running and triathlon teams!)
