Red Hot Chilli Steppers take on the Great York Walk 2024

A project by: Red Hot Chilli Steppers

pledged of £1,350 target
Sponsor us to walk a half marathon to help transform the state of mental health in York and beyond


The Red Hot Chilli Steppers will be taking part in The Great York Walk, walking that 20km route (12.5 miles) to raise 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. These statistics need to change.

So together with a great community of people - some with a connection to York, some with no connection - We're going to walk 12 miles on the 18 May around York. 

Please donate anything you can to help our 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).

The group taking on this challenge as part of The Red Hot Chilli Steppers will be:

  • Elizabeth Spencer 
  • Laura Hurst 
  • Melissa Henthorne 
  • Nicola Long 
  • Sarah Finch 
  • Sophie Weeks 
  • Tracey Milnes

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 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.
