Hull & East Yorkshire Mind (Mind HEY) is a local charity which has been providing mental health support to people in Hull and East Yorkshire for the last 40 years. Their vision is that they won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both the support and respect they deserve. The charity campaigns to improve services and to reduce stigma and discrimination.
According to Mind: “Every year one in four people will experience a mental health problem. This means that there is someone touched by mental health problems in almost every family, school and workplace. The impact of mental illness can be devastating, not only for those directly affected but also their families, friends, colleagues and loved ones. “
Jack Moore, Marketing Officer for Mind HEY, commented: “We support more than 5000 people each year, but there are so many more people that need us. We wouldn’t be able to do our work without the support of our fantastic fundraisers. Anyone who runs and raises money for Hull & East Yorkshire Mind can be assured that their donation will help to make a real difference to people’s lives in our area.”
Mind HEY is recruiting people to take part in the RB Hull Marathon or relays to raise much-needed funds. Runners should sign up for the race then contact the charity for a fundraising pack at firstname.lastname@example.org. Runners will benefit from being welcomed before the start of the race by Mind supporters who will also be there to celebrate with them at the finish. They will be encouraged and supported on the route at Mind HEY cheer points.
