We're walking 40km (25 miles) in 1 day to raise money for Mentally Fit York!


After a lifetime of being fairly content couch potatoes, we're 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. The Great York Walk takes place on 28th May and skirts the whole city. It starts at the University, and crosses Monk Stray, Bootham Stray, Clifton Ings, Hob Moor, Knavesmire, Fulford Ings and Walmgate Stray before heading back to the University campus.

This is a subject close to Liz's heart, and we'd like to feel closer to your wallets, so please donate anything you can to help our target and improve mental health in York and beyond. Our exhausted little legs will be grateful.

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.
