As part of our 25th Anniversary year, we are holding a 10km event - wherever you want it to be! Whichever young mind you are #FightingFor, you can run, swim, skate or walk 10km on any day this September and help raise vital funds for children and young people’s mental health.
Upon completion, all participants will receive a special 10K Your Way medal which has been co-designed by our Activists. The Activists chose the design for the medal to represent how mental health recovery isn't always linear, but a journey.
When: Any date of your choosing in September
Where: Anywhere you like
Distance: 10km (6 miles)
Registration Fee: £20
*£17.50 will be donated directly to YoungMinds; the rest will be used for the creation and delivery of your bespoke 10K Your Way medal
Fundraising Target: Not compulsory, but any additional fundraising you choose to do on top of your registration fee would be amazing, and will help us reach our ambitious 25th Anniversary fundraising goals. If you decide to raise further funds, making sure you link with our 10K Your Way Community Hub.
So how does it work?
10K Your Way is a virtual race, meaning it can be completed at any location or time. You don't have to physically turn up to a race start line, and no navigating past hundreds of fellow runners!
You could complete the 10K in fancy dress, skate it in rollerblades, walk up a mountain or even swim with a furry companion. And it doesn't matter when you do it either. It can be your lunch break, on the school run, or at the weekend with friends and family.
Once you've completed your 10K, you simply need to let us know by showing us a photo of your distance covered, or a snap of you in action.
How will your money help?
£17.50 per entry will come straight to YoungMinds and help us fight for children and young people’s mental health. Your support through this event will be pivotal in helping us create a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.
