This week, we'd like to say a big thank-you to our star fundraiser, Susan Bridgeford, who spent 2016 tirelessly fundraising for SANE. We are always astonished by the achievements of our fundraisers, and Susan is certainly no exception to the rule.
Susan's fundraising journey began on her 50th birthday, when she asked all of her family and friends to mark the occasion by donating to SANE. Determined to reach her personal target of £3000, Susan's next step was to take on the New York Marathon, one of the most famous marathons in the world. On 6th November, she completed this amazing feat in a little over five hours, and we couldn't be prouder of her.
To date, Susan has raised £5000, far exceeding her original target. This wouldn't have been possible without the amazing support of her friends and family; thank you to you all.
"We are incredibly proud to have Susan on Team SANE. Her determination and committment to changing mental health for good are inspiring. On behalf of all those you've enabled us to help, thank you."
- Helen Duguid, Community & Events Officer at SANE
