We are taking on The Great York Walk, a 25 mile marathon walking event in order to raise funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York. Between us we hope to walk 100km (Clem, Wilbur, Henry will walk for 40km and Mog, Mary and Nicole will walk for 90km).

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

Our walk will be in aid of the Mentally Fit York Fund, which will promote good mental health both at the University of York and across 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.

If we hit our target, 20 people will be able to receive mental health first aid training or we'll be able to support a Mental Health Nursing Scholar for about half a term - please donate anything you can to help us make this happen! :)
