Raise money for Mentally Fit York
Walk around York to transform mental health
Sign up for the 25 mile walking challenge taking place on the Saturday 3rd June 2023 to raise funds for desperately needed mental health research and initiatives to transform mental health for everyone.
Participation is open to everyone, including students, staff, alumni and members of the public. We encourage all of our walkers to challenge themselves to take on the entire Great York Walk route which is 25miles/40km, however for those who would prefer a shorter route we also have 6.25miles/10km and 12.5miles/20km options.
As a person who struggles with mental health as well, I thought that this is an amazing opportunity to fundraise for a cause that has a special place for me while also doing something that I enjoy (walking).

Mentally Fit York
Mentally Fit York improves mental health and wellbeing in many forms, reaching out from the University to the city's communities and beyond.
Thanks to our incredible Great York Walkers, funding is now already in place to support a range of mental health initiatives, including supporting the work of the newly launched Institute of Mental Health Research at York.
If you’re interested in getting involved and have any further questions, contact The Great York Walk team at email@example.com.
