We did it!


Congratulations to Rik & Hannah who successfully completed the Barns Green Half Marathon on 24th September!

They said:

‘Thanks to all of you who have supported us and donated to this fabulous charity. We did it! It was a hot, hilly, lovely day with lots of other great charity runners we met along the way. Our official chip finish times were 2.11 and 1.59 – so very happy with that! So stiff I am struggling to get down stairs or walk in a straight line today!’

The donations are still coming in on their Just Giving site, please do donate what you can.

Hannah got in touch after the event and said:

‘It’s by far the furthest I have run since having children and I still ache today! We did it in a very respectable 2.11 and 1.59 ( Rik went ahead for the second half and I got chatting to some wonderful fundraisers for another great mental health charity ‘ young minds’ )

Fundraising for App and Running in the App vest and talking to people about my experience was a really big thing for me and the whole event was very emotional. Having PP really tested Rik’s and mine relationship and ultimately made it stronger – also I experienced PTSD after my PP hospital admission and it took a long time for me to really own the experience of having had Postpartum Psychosis and understand that it was not my fault. So running in a vest and talking to people about it was a real achievement in itself ( perhaps more so than the distance! )’


What a great achievement for Hannah & Rik. Thank you both so much for supporting APP!
