100km Ultra Marathon Run

Over £1,420 Raised

Yesterday, 10th September was national suicide awareness day. It was also the day Becky and Poppy Pope conquered the mighty ULTRA. Here is Poppy’s message:

I wish I could say this was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but I would be lying. My mental illness is the most tiring, most challenging and most evil battle I have ever endured. It took away my love and appreciation for my beautiful life that I’m so lucky to have. The stigma around mental illness is awful, I struggle to acknowledge and am reluctant to reveal my ongoing battle with mental illness. However, I know the importance of raising awareness. I want to say thank you to everyone who has been with me on my journey. The support system I found in unlikely friends, strangers, and family I am ever in debt to. The patience, time, and love I receive is something I can only wish to repay.

The ugly behaviour that follows in the shadow of mental illness burdens me everyday, but each time I begin to wallow in my actions, humanity restores me and reminds me how understanding and forgiving people are. Thank you. I can only urge you to hold on and fight each day – it gets better. Thank you to everyone for your support towards Becky and I. ❤️ Pops ????
