Mind Your Body

Mind Your Body: Walk for wellbeing, run for recovery

Join us at our fundraising event, in partnership with Serco, on Saturday 11 October 2014 – the day after World Mental Health Day – to raise awareness of mental health and much-needed funds for our CPFT charity. 

It costs just £5 to enter and you can challenge yourself to walk, skip, hop or run 3km, 5km, or 10km around Grafham Water, near Huntingdon, and raise money at the same time. Children under the age of five can enter free of charge.

Help us to brighten an October morning and spread rays of positivity by wearing yellow or orange – the colours of the sun! If you don't own anything in those colours why not raid your friends' wardrobes or support your local charity shop.

It is well known that one in four of us will experience some kind of mental health challenge in the course of a lifetime. We want to breakdown some of the stigma that still surrounds mental health and raise awareness of the important role exercise plays in health and wellbeing.

Registration opens at 9:30am, followed by a warm up at 10:30am. The event will officially start at 11am from the Visitor Centre, Marlow Park, Grafham, Huntingdon, PE28 0BH.

Help us to spread the word further and put up a poster at your work/school/community centre/gym. You can download it by clicking here.

This event has been made possible thanks to our generous partner Serco and sponsors Kelway and G4S.

What are we raising money for?

We are raising money for The Croft Child and Family Unit, an inpatient ward for children and their families – the only family residential service of its kind in England! The ward supports children who are experiencing challenges from depression to anxiety, and OCD to eating disorders. The money raised will go towards much needed sensory equipment to support the children in their recovery. 

We are also fundraising for our Recovery College East, an educational facility that offers free courses for services users, to help them into employment and develop useful life skills. 

Angela, a student at the college, said: “Recovery College East has given me a new direction for the future. When I felt that I had lost who I was the college gave me self confidence which helped me try new things.”
