We are two teams of students and staff from the Foundation Year for Electronic Engineering (EE) and Physics at the University of York. We're fundraising together, as a single team, but we're competing as Wattsits [EE 💡] vs Trekonometry [Physics  ⚛] for who walks the most miles. Each team has pledged to walk at least 500 miles.

We are in the picture above:

The Great York Walk is a challenge walking event to raise funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York. Together with lots of other people - some with a connection to York, some with no connection - we're going to be counting our daily steps from 10 May until 20 June (for the next six weeks) to contribute to a 25,000 mile walking goal --- the equivalent of a walk around the Earth.

Please donate to support us and improve mental health in York and beyond! (P.S. If you want to join the walk, you can sign up here.)

about mentally fit york

Our walk will be in aid of Mentally Fit York, which will promote good mental health on a local, national and international scale. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as 24/7 mental health support for York students and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.

Your support may also go towards providing suicide prevention training, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships or it could contribute to a range of other initiatives which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
