This Mum Runs: the story of one mum who wanted to connect with other mums with a common interest

This Mum Runs was founded in 2014 by Mel Bound who had found herself following the birth of her second child not excising regularly, forgoing self-care and lost in mum groups whose only connection was having children. Mel wanted to connect with other mums who had a common interest and for Mel this was running. Mel decided to post on Facebook and see what response she got, 75 women meeting in a local park later and This mum’s run was created. The group support and encourage each other to try their best as well as believe in themselves.
