2018 - Miles For Mind.Virtual Run
Miles For Mind 2018 - we've crossed the finish line!
That's it. 31 days of running and talking has come to an end and what a month it's been! Runners from up and down the UK and as far afield as Canada and the US, have been encouraging, supporting and spurring each other on to lace up and go for a run, no matter how far or for how long.
The use of #MentalHealthMatters and #ItsOkNotToBeOk has been great to see as you've been sharing your stories of how you use running as a way of combatting your own personal experience of mental health challenges. With some runners continuing to share their stories and others opening up for the first time, the support has been phenomenal to see and we hope it will continue long after Miles For Mind!
We're pleased to confirm that we have currently raised over £10,100 for Mind which we're delighted with, so a massive thank you to you all for your contribution during the event. You can find the original 2018 Miles For Mind page here.
