Gabriel Struzik

Hi my name is Gabriel and I am a student at the University of Aberdeen. The ongoing school year being online gives me the opportunity to plan my lectures around this and to raise money for a cause that is very close to my heart.

October 2020 marks one year since the passing of my grandmother who unfortunately suffered from schizophrenia. This illness had a massive impact both on her life and the lives of her family surrounding her. My grandmother played a huge role throughout my life, particularly in my early childhood years helping to raise me. My grandmother always told me and everyone she met of how proud she was of me. I therefore hope that by fundraising for this amazing charity I can continue making her proud.

In my grandmother's memory and to raise money for the charity, I will be running 6K everyday for the month of October - the month in which she passed away. Being able to do this gives me a positive outlook on her life and the positive impact she is still having on the world to this day.

I have chosen to do this everyday for a month as I believe that this will be as much of a physical challenge as well as a mental one which is fitting for the cause. I have created a facebook page to keep track of my progress where I will post everyday: @6KaDay. If you have a facebook account and are able to share the page or the link to attract as many potential donations as possible then I would much appreciate it! www.facebook.com/6KaDay
