York’s Marathon Month 2023 raises £5,535.
Posted on 13 November 2023
The University of York launched York’s Marathon Month for the first time in October 2022 to support the Mentally Fit York fund, raising money to promote good mental health among the city's communities and beyond.
In its second year during October 2023, over 70 people signed up to walk or run 26.2 miles at their own pace during October, to raise awareness and funds for Mentally Fit York. We were joined by supporters from around the world, all keeping track of their total distances through the Myles app, created by York Alum Toby Cannon.
Together we raised an amazing £5,535.
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 participants and to everyone who supported them.
