the project

Hello!

Thank you very much for visiting my page.

I'm hoping to raise £250 for the Great York Walk. The 25 mile walk is funding Mentally Fit York, a new initiative helping to change the landscape of mental health in York and beyond.

Mentally Fit York's projects include: promoting a good understanding of mental health and how to tackle it in our community, and funding mental health nursing scholarships. 

Who am i?

My name's Rachel, and I am a Masters student at the Uni.

my perspective

It goes without saying that improving mental health facilities and understanding is really important, and fundraisers like the Great York Walk keep up the momentum of the current push to prioritise mental health.

I feel really excited and lucky to have the chance to do the Walk. The money raised in this fundraiser, alongside all the other fundraisers, will truly make a change to mental health here in York and beyond.

It's a great opportunity to challenge my fitness, too, and spend a day outdoors! 

Where will the money go?

Here's an idea of exactly where your donation could go if I hit my target of £250...

  • 10 people receiving Mental Health First Aid training
  • Supporting a Mental Health Nursing student for about half a term

Finally...

Thanks again for taking a look at my fundraiser, and if you are able to donate, thank you very much. If you're able to spread the word a bit about the Great York Walk too, that'd be brilliant. I'll share my progress with the fundraising on Facebook.

And finally, if you'd like to sign up to also do the Walk (either 10k or 40k) - here's the link!
