At Lancashire Mind we believe that there should be no barriers to people achieving good mental health and wellbeing and we are working to break boundaries and lead a mental wellbeing revolution. Many of the team have lived in experience of mental health conditions and/or have seen the impact poor mental health and wellbeing has had on loved ones.
We don't want anyone to face mental health conditions alone and see a future where everyone in Lancashire understands their mental health and wellbeing, see it as important as physical health and know how to look after it. The Lancashire Mind team want your help to walk/run the border of Lancashire to show that everyone in this county matters.
In 2020 a group of fundraisers, our Boundary Breakers as we call them, had just 14 days to complete the challenge for the first time, running or walking, cycling until they reached their total. In 2020 our Boundary Breakers covered over 2000 miles- an amazing achievement!
By signing up to be a Lancashire Mind Boundary Breaker you can set your distance to be anything you like and every mile will help us to reach our target. For example, you may choose to walk or run 5 miles in a day which will be added to the 417 target. Or you may choose to walk 15 miles over a week. If doesn't matter how you do it. What matters is you are taking us all closer to our target and showing your support.
As well as being a part of the supportive closed Facebook group with daily updates on the challenge, which we will send those joining us in the challenge details for, we are going to have a group Zoom call at the end when the final mile has run so no matter what part of the journey you join us for we will all complete the challenge together.
Look out for more details about Breaking Boundaries 2021 in early 2021. But you don't have to wait for us! You can complete this challenge with colleagues, family and friends at any time of the year. Contact our Fundraising Lead, Emma Bateson [email protected] for full details.
