Samaritans are an amazing organisation that saved my life. A conversation with a Samaritan bought me back from a very dark place -without that call there is a high likelihood that I wouldn't be here today. Running the marathon is a little way for me to pay back the support that the Samaritans gave to me when I needed someone the most. I hope that the money I raise will help others who are struggling and feel that they can't go on anymore.
