Reach Your Peak

Every year, people start the new year with good intentions to keep healthy resolutions, but two-thirds of us in the UK admit to stopping before the end of January. At Mental Health UK we want to harness the power of teams to help us all keep those healthy habits going well into the new year. To do this, we’re encouraging you and your colleagues to commit to Reach Your Peak together in January 2020.

Reach Your Peak is a team fundraising event, accumulating distance over a month in whatever way you choose.

  • Get a group of colleagues together and agree to an activity to take part in. Keep it simple: it could be as easy as motivating each other to hit a daily/weekly step target, or you could get together with other runners or cyclists.
  • Nominate a representative to email [email protected] for additional support and ideas.
  • Choose a peak to reach over the month of January, or a target each week. We have some suggestions on the next page.
  • Make it public for that extra motivation! Set up a JustGiving page and let people know what you’ve got planned. It will help to keep you and your colleagues on track by raising money for Mental Health UK.
  • Keep each other going in January – monitor each other’s progress, or pair up to support each other to Reach Your Peak.
