Weʼre raising £5,000 to help and support people in the UK living with mental health issues.
- United Kingdom
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hello, we are Paul and Zoe. Fortysomething partners, parents and 'runners' from Leicestershire and we are calling on the running community and anyone that would love to get involved!
Running has been kind to both of us throughout our lives. We have always experienced fantastic support and encouragement and made many life-long friends along the way. We have decided now feels like the right time to give something back to those who need help and support of their own.
We have created Head Runners to raise funds to help people in the UK living with mental health issues. Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. This needs to change!!
Our aim is to provide funding and deliver charitable services by offering mental health courses through MHFA England for both individuals and running clubs across the UK, allowing them to help improve the lives of those who need assistance.
Please join us in supporting those in need.
Many thanks, Paul & Zoe.
