Raise your heart-beat and funds for Suffolk Mind in the 2020 Virgin London Marathon
For the first time, mental health charity Suffolk Mind has been awarded a place in the Virgin London Marathon and they want to offer it to a member of the Suffolk community.
The place is open to applications from anybody over the age of 18 and living or working in Suffolk who wants to contribute to Suffolk Mind’s mission of making Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about and taking care of mental health.
Money raised from different challenges like this goes towards things like our counselling services, so they are available to people who can’t afford to wait or go private, and our GreenCare project, that gets people out and about working on allotments, learning new skills and meeting up with likeminded people.
Community Fundraising Coordinator at Suffolk Mind, Lizzy Tuthill said: “We’re delighted to have received a place in the 2020 Virgin London Marathon and we’re excited to offer this to a member of the Suffolk community.
“All we ask of this person is to raise a minimum of £1,000 for Suffolk Mind and to help us shout as loud as possible about the amazing challenge they will undertake. We at Suffolk Mind will support you every step of the way.”
The Virgin London Marathon is being held on Sunday 26th April 2020. Applications for the one and only place for Suffolk Mind close at midnight on Sunday 8th September 2019 and the selected candidate will be informed on Monday 16th September 2019.
