Running the Yorkshire Marathon on the 20th October 2019 to raise money for Mentally Fit York

Yorkshire Marathon

A sell-out every year since its launch in 2013, the Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular marathons. The Yorkshire Marathon is a picturesque course and showcases the very best of the historic city of York and its surrounding countryside.

Mentally Fit York

Mental health doesn't discriminate and we should all be able to feel safe and supported in talking to each other about our mental health. 

My run will be in aid of the Mentally Fit York Fund, which will promote good mental health both at the University of York and the city of York. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as mental health first aid, as well as research projects looking to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.

Your support may also go towards providing Mental Health Nursing Scholarships, helping to ensure that the NHS is equipped to deal with the increased demand for mental healthcare as we start to become more comfortable in including discussions of mental health when we talk about our health and wellbeing in our communities.
