I’m walking 25 miles to raise funds and awareness for ‘Mentally Fit York’, the University of York’s new fund, which will support a number of mental health and wellbeing initiatives.

Ill mental health is something that is likely to affect all of us in some way, I’m lucky enough to work for a company that cares about our wellbeing, and have a great network of family and friends to help me with any problems, but not everyone is that fortunate.

One of the things that the money raised from this walk will go towards is creating mental health scholarships for mental health students from a low-income background, something I really believe in. 

I’ll be doing this walk with a group of my friends and fellow Aviva employees, and we can use Aviva’s pound-for-pound matching scheme to help increase any sponsorship we raise. 

I thank you in advance for helping me and my team to help raise much needed funds for this amazing campaign 😊
