Sponsor me to walk a marathon in "full" Orange around York for Mentally Fit York.

Orange for the Win?

Over the past few years people's mental health has been thrown into chaos. I believe it is vital that we not only address this as a community, but that we actively do something about it. Which is why I'm walking a marathon.

I walked The Great York Walk last year and I cannot wait to walk it again for Mentally Fit York this year.

If you are on the walk with me, have a look for the guy dressed head to toe in Orange, that'll be me, come and say hi.

I cannot wait to support Mentally Fit York and their vital initiatives.

The full Details of the walk

A 25 mile (40km) marathon walking event that will help to transform mental health by raising funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York. Mental ill-health doesn't discriminate and whether we're experts in mental health or not, we should all be able to feel safe and supported in talking to each other about our mental health.

So together with a great community of people - some with a connection to York, some with no connection - I'm going to walk 25 miles on the 3rd June around York! 

Please donate anything you can to help the target and improve mental health in York and beyond! (P.S. If you want to find out more about the walk and the cause you can do so here)

mentally fit York and it's impact

My walk will be in aid of Mentally Fit York, which will promote good mental health on a local, national and international scale. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as 24/7 mental health support for York students and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.

Your support may also go towards providing suicide prevention training, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships or it could contribute to a range of other initiatives which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
