Dan of Steel

On Sunday 24th May, the wonderful Dan Hughes took on the 52.4 mile Race to the King... and triumphed!

Dan has struggled with OCD since the age of 9, but it was only recently that he got diagnosed. His symptoms got worse after having kids, to the extent that he realised his son was starting to copy his traits. This shocked Dan into finally seeking help, and he has now completed a course of therapy, which has helped him get his life back together. Dan now feels like a different person - he still gets OCD symptoms but now has the tools to cope with them.

London Marathon 2018: Congratulations to David Goldstone!

OCD Action would like to say a HUGE congratulations and thank you to our Virgin Money London Marathon runner David Goldstone!

David took on this legendary 26 mile course inspired by his daughter, Sophie, who has had a long battle with OCD over the last few years. Sophie has come a long way and although still fighting OCD continues to improve every day. Through the video she produced for the OCD National Conference she has become an inspiration for many young people also fighting, and she will be helping produce a film for the Michael Rutter Centre.
