Driven by my own experiences as an athlete encouraged to lose weight in order to run faster, in 2018 I founded the #TRAINBRAVE campaign along with leading sports dietitian Renee McGregor.
Our campaign aims to raise awareness of eating disorders and and relative energy deficiency in sport amongst athletes, coaches, clubs and clinicians to highlight the risks and promote healthy relationships with food and exercise.

Beat is the UK’s leading charity supporting anyone affected by eating disorders or difficulties with food, weight and shape.
Beat’s aims are:
To change the way everyone thinks and talks about eating disorders
To improve the way services and treatment are provided
And to help anyone believe that their eating disorder can be beaten
They do this by challenging the stereotypes and stigma that people with eating disorders face, campaigning for better services and treatment, and providing information, support and encouragement to seek treatment and recovery.
