My name is John Daniel Marangiello and I have suffered from mental illness. I have seen the ugly side our minds can invoke. Awkward communication. A poor processing of emotions. Life at face value being a drag. I have also recovered from that mental illness though. I can see the beauty our minds can acquire. Feelings of peace pumping through the veins. A sharp intellect ready to discover solutions. That is my story and that is why I am here. I am here to run the heck out of the next 200 days and document it all on YouTube in order to get the world to stand up for the brain. I found the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation on charitynavigator.org to be one of the highest scoring charities for its transparency and financial handling. 100% of your money goes into funding scientists discover and solve problems associated with mental illness. I feel that many of us are affected in some way by this topic. This is a great start. This is a great investment. I will make an effort. I hope you will join me!
