This campaign was inspired by Marlee who was one of our very first virtual fundraisers during the Lockdown in 2020. You can also read her inspiring story here. This year we wanted to invite some of our supporters to take on the challenge as we knew how much Marlee had enjoyed it.

This is Charlotte and she managed to raise an incredible £875 while taking on this month long challenge of running 5K every single day. 

"I can honestly say I enjoyed it so much. I feel so much better in myself knowing I completed such a tough challenge by setting myself the target of running it everyday! Getting outdoors more boosted my energy levels and knowing I’ve raised all that money for such an amazing cause makes it feel so worth all the aching legs and knees! I have used Mind’s services and when I saw this challenge I just knew I had to give it my best shot and use it as a chance to speak up about mental health awareness."

Thank you so much to Charlotte and everyone who took part in our 5K challenge. In total the team raised over £1669 to help us continue to support our vital services in Teesside.
