Lara Takes On The Great York Walk 2024!

Sponsor me to walk 40km 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 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children will experience a mental health problem each year. These statistics need to change. 

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 in York!

Any donation, large or small, would be much appreciated, as all donations go towards improving mental health in York and beyond. Follow this link if you would like more information about Mentally Fit York.

about me

My name is Lara and I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of York. As a student, I understand the importance of advocating for mental health. I am in my final year, and would like to take part in a project that will make a difference. It's important to be the change you want to see (as cliche as it sounds!) 

Where will the money go?

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 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. 

Help me succeed!

You don't need to give money to help; also feel free to share this page with anyone you think would support this project. Thank you!! :)
