Sponsor me to walk a marathon to help transform the state of mental health in York and beyond!


I'm taking on The Great York 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.

In the UK, up to one in four adults and one in ten children will experience a mental health problem each year. I have personally seen, felt and experienced this myself, as I am sure many of you have.

These statistics need to change. I want to do something about it. I want to help.

So many people are suffering each and every day in York and beyond - lets work together to try to make our beautiful city a little bit brighter.

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 18th May around York! 

Please donate anything you can to help my target and improve mental health in York and beyond! 🙂 (P.S. Follow the link if you want to find out more about the walk and the cause).

about mentally fit York

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 on the ground initiatives and the latest groundbreaking research.

This could include 24/7 mental health support for York students, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships, and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services. Your support will contribute to a range of initiatives and research projects which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
