It’s Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) and this year at Young Goat we’re aiming to mobilise the Herd to get outdoors and get active, all the while raising money for our fantastic partner charities: OTR Bristol, Second Step and Black Minds Matter.
Our goal this week is to run 2000km as a community, while tracking progress through the app Strava. As a company we will all be running but we need your help if we’re going to reach that target.
Outdoor activity has a huge potential to enhance our wellbeing, increasing our mental alertness, energy and positive mood. With that said, we really encourage each and every one of you to get involved in some way so that together we can reach both our donation and distance targets.
For those who want to get involved, here’s what you need to do:
- Download the app Strava
- Join our Young Goat running club - https://www.strava.com/clubs/927803
- Then, for any run or walk you do, be sure to record it with the Strava app and it’ll automatically add your distance to the group total, which will massively help us reach our collective goal of 2000km - remember, every little helps.
- Donate whatever you can to participate and if you don’t currently have the means, don’t worry as we still want you involved.
- Donations are made through our JustGiving page, where all the money will then be split between OTR Bristol, Second Step and Black Minds Matter.
In addition to this, 10% of all sales made on our website this week will be added to our final donation total and go towards the aforementioned charities. Let's get active and let's get talking.
