APP say a BIG Thank You to Rachel who will be running in this year's Royal Parks Half Marathon, taking place on Sunday 14th October, in aid of APP! This stunning central London Half Marathon, takes in some of the capital's world - famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.
Rachel is running in aid of APP after suffering with PP in 2017, she says:
"On Christmas Day 2016 we welcomed our little boy into the world. We were over the moon and brought him home on Boxing Day feeling daunted, scared but so so proud!
We didn’t know that just two days later I would be readmitted to hospital with a condition none of us had ever heard of before, Postpartum Psychosis....After a short stay in a mother and baby unit 50 miles from home I was discharged and have received support from a brilliant charity Action on Postpartum Psychosis.
I’m running the royal parks half marathon to raise much needed funds for APP so that no women or families have to face this misunderstood condition alone. The charity has supported my family and me hugely throughout my recovery. And quite honestly I wouldn’t be where I am without them."
Please visit Rachel's Just Giving page here and donate what you can - thank you.
Thanks so much to Rachel for taking on this challenge in aid of APP, and we wish you all the very best with your training!
