About

Hey everyone! Jazzy and Georgie are doing a charity social run this week to support our friend Hannah, who's running an ultra marathon for Beat, the UK’s leading eating disorder charity. We'd love for you to join us in a joint social run with triathlon to raise awareness and funds to help others facing similar challenges. The cost is only £2 so please come along to support a great cause! Here is Hannah’s story - TW eating disorder: I'm Hannah and I'm a student at Exeter Uni and was very keen member of EUTri Club (looking forward to going back after my placement year!). I struggled with anorexia in sixth form, and I couldn't really imagine being happy and healthy again. Even knowing that my heart was failing was still not enough to persuade myself to eat more. But with the help of my family, friends, school and CAMHS, I (slowly!) got through it- I'm now 3 years into uni and have met some of the most amazing people and made some of the best memories. I'm extremely grateful to have re-found my love for running/sport (hence I'm now running an ultra marathon as part of my fundraising mission!) and left anorexia in the past. Eating disorders are serious and deadly illnesses and affect people both mentally and physically. I hope this fundraising mission will raise awareness and enable others to get help sooner.
