Team brightfive are running the York 10k to help raise much-needed funds for our chosen charity, York Mind.
This brilliant local charity offers much needed support to anyone suffering mental ill-health in York. From support groups and counselling to practical support and advocacy, York Mind help people overcome obstacles to social inclusion, learning and employment.
Mental illness affects 1 in 4 people every year and with rates of mental illness on the rise, this is an issue that strikes close to home. If you’re fortunate enough not to have experienced it yourself, you will know someone who is directly affected by mental illness.
None of us have ever ran a race as long as this before, so we'll be doing plenty of training to meet the challenge!
