The Great York Walk 2022

Posted on 1 August 2022

The Great York Walk 2022 raises £22,000 for Mentally Fit York.

The University of York launched The Great York Walk in 2019 to support the Mentally Fit York fund in order to raise money to promote good mental health among the city's communities and beyond.

On Saturday 28th May 2022, 121 alumni, staff, students, and friends of the University joined together to take on The Great York Walk 2022. This was the first year the walk was able to take place back in York after the event was held in virtual formats during the coronavirus lockdowns.

It was a brilliant day, with participants walking 10km, 20km or the full 40km (25 mile) route! The weather was perfect, and there was a great community of walkers, who enjoyed exploring the wonderful city of York in a new way. 

Together we raised an amazing £22,000 for Mentally Fit York. 

This will support on the ground initiatives and groundbreaking research to improve mental health in York and beyond. 

Thank you so much to all of our walkers and to everyone who supported them. The Great York Walk will be back in 2023!
