Move it for Mental Health

Join #TeamMHUK this Summer for our latest virtual event. Get running, cycling or walking over the next four weeks to improve your wellbeing and fundraise to help others with theirs too.

Move it for Mental Health is simple:

  1. Choose a distance to cover over a month. You could run a marathon over a month, cycle 180 miles or walk 10,000 steps a day! Take on whatever feels like an achievable challenge for you.
  2. Track your progress by using the app Strava (it’s free to download, once you’ve registered we’ll send you details with how to do that) and chat to others taking part in the challenge.
  3. Fundraise for Mental Health UK as you go so that we can help people affected by mental health problems.

As a token of our appreciation, raise anything over £100 and we’ll send you a Mental Health UK medal!

Josh decided to run 100 miles in a month, he smashed that distance, ran 130 miles and raised £1,300 to support people that need us the most.

The positive impact the group has had on me is huge. I don’t feel so isolated any more. If the support had not been available I would still be facing depression and loneliness, unable to look after myself and over-thinking things.

Read what some of our fundraisers have to say.

"I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise."

Louise Greenwood,

"I was totally elated when I crossed the line and so glad I’d given it a go!"

Helen Taylor

"Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps"
