What is RED January?
Suffolk Mind is excited to be partnering with RED January, a community initiative that encourages you to support your mental health by doing something active every single day during a characteristically tough month.
Whether it’s running 5k or walking to work a new way, a morning swim or taking your bike for a spin, you can join the thousands of people around the UK, kick-starting their 2019 in the most positive way.
How can physical activity help support your mental health?
RED January is founded on research that physical activity can have a positive impact on your mental health.
87% of REDers reported feeling significantly better physically and mentally after completing RED January 2018 according to the post-RED survey.
More information about the importance of physical activity to mental health can be found on Mind’s website.
Do you need to fundraise to take part?
You don’t need to fundraise to take part in Red January. However, if you’d like to raise money for Suffolk Mind, that’s great!
The easiest way is to set up a giving page which you can do when you complete the ‘Register for RED January’ form.
You just need to add a photo and details of why you’re fundraising for Suffolk Mind and submit. If you need any help with getting your page set up, feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When your form has been submitted, we will send you a link to your giving page which will appear on the fundraising events section of our website. This should take 2-3 days. You can then share this with family and friends and social networks to make sure everyone can see and support your incredible journey.
Alternatively, you can use Just Giving.
How to register
Whether you are fundraising or not, we’d love you to register for Red January. Simply complete the ‘Register for RED January’ form. We will then send you your welcome pack.
How do I get a RED t-shirt?
We are excited to share RED’s exclusive RED January 2019 t-shirts (including some very special touches).
As the t-shirts do come at a significant cost, there is a charge of £10. All t-shirts come on a first-come-first-served basis. Just to let you know, they do come up quite small.
Please note, you must have registered for RED January to purchase a t-shirt.Buttons: Sidebar Content: ,
