Team Challenge for Action Mental Health
General fundraising has been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of fundraising events have been cancelled and many charities, are struggling to maintain services because of this huge reduction in income.
We believe that mental health is important as physical health and our charity champions have launched a TEAM CHALLENGE with a personal target, to raise funds and support our charity partner Action Mental Health.
This September everyone involved has agreed to complete 5k a day. The minimum distance will be covered by a variety of activities including walking, swimming, cycling and running.
Statistics on mental illness in Northern Ireland can be shocking, and experts believe they will be on the rise because of the impact of the recent pandemic.
