WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We're taking on The Great York Walk to raise funds for Mentally Fit York - an initiative on mental health at the University and the City of York. Mental ill-health doesn't discriminate, it affects people from all backgrounds, and Covid has brought new challenges. So together with loads of other people - some with a connection to York, some without - the Jeffery family are going to be counting their daily steps for the next three months (10th May - 31st July) as a contribution to the overall goal of 25,000 miles - that's the equivalent of a walk all the way round the Earth! Please donate anything you can to help reach our fund-raising target and improve mental health in York and beyond! :) (P.S. If you want to join us on the walk, you can sign up here.)
about mentally fit york
Our 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, grants for mental health nursing students, suicide-prevention training, research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services, or a range of other initiatives selected by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
