Charlie Corten from Hereford is raising funds for Mental Health UK.
Last March he took part in the Newport Half Marathon and raised over £600 for Mental Health UK.
Charlie commented on his Just Giving Page “I thought to myself what could I do this year under the current guidelines. With no planned events I have to do something on my own. I’ve decided throughout the month of February to run 100 miles in aid of Mental Health UK. Mental health affects so many people especially during these current challenging times.”
Charlie continued “My own mental health isn’t great at the moment so if anything is going to give me some commitment and motivation it’s this . Any donations no matter how small will mean the world and help people break the stigma and get the help they need and deserve.”
Charlie is a member of the Cheltenham Town Hereford Development Centre and his coach Andy Bevan told Your Herefordshire, “Charlie has been in the academy with me originally at Hereford FC and when it folded I took him with me to the Cheltenham development centre where he is captain even though he is only 18, he’s doing exceptionally well.”
Bevan continued, “It says what Charlie’s all about as he is raising money for Mental Health, we’ve had some tough times this season and he’s developed as a person and took everything all on board the right way. He’s a great leader and a terrific lad with a wonderful family behind him, we all know how tough it is in the current climate, sport plays a great part in helping people with their Mental Health and by Charlie raising awareness of this it shows what a great lad he is.”
