Get moving and raise money for mental health!
Join our new challenge and give your mental health a boost. Set yourself a 30-day exercise and fundraising goal, and complete at least 30 minutes of daily exercise, in any form, each day throughout January 2022.
Our theme is ‘Move your body, to free your mind’ with the purpose of emphasising the positive benefits of physical exercise on mental health and well-being.
What do I have to do?
Choose your challenge. You can do anything you like to take part in Move for Mind… Have a dance around your living room every day, have a jog around the park before work, or walk the coast each weekend. You can even team up and take it on with your friends too, so long as you’re moving and having fun!
Why should I get involved?
Want to start a healthy new habit, but not sure how to make it stick? How about knowing that whilst you’re doing it, you’re joining the fight for better, more equal mental health services for all.
Access to mental health support is still too often determined by where we live or who we are. At Andover Mind, we’re dedicated to ending this injustice, and helping people from all walks of life with the support they need.
We need your help. Together, we can build a society that fights for the mental health of every last one of us. But to get there, we need your support.
How do I take part?
Just choose your challenge, raise money and help us fight for mental health. We’ll even send a t-shirt your way when you hit that first £50, and a medal when you raise £150.
It’s free to enter, simply complete the registration form, and our fundraising team will be in touch. If you are raising money for us, you can download a sponsor form or create your own JustGiving page.
Donations received will help Andover Mind continue providing services right across Hampshire, supporting people with mental ill-health as well as adult carers, who care for an adult, and people living with dementia and mild cognitive impairment.
When is it happening?
Signup anytime from December 1st to January 31st, and start your challenge whenever you’d like. Your 30 days don’t have to be one after another – take your time and have fun. Exercise is personal, so pace it out in a way that works, just make sure you’re finished by March 2nd.
