Last week we set out with the goal of raising £2000 while collectively running 2000km for Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW). Both were a big task but thanks again to all of your wonderful support and efforts, we're delighted to say that both targets were absolutely smashed. 

Over £2500 was raised and will be donated to our three fantastic partner charities, who do exceptional work for the cause, and help support so many. We will also be adding 10% of our sales from last week to the final donation total.

When we initially planned 2000km, I don't think any of us realised quite how far it is! To give you some context, you could walk from London to Rome, with kilometres to spare, and you would need 20,833 Big Bens to make up this distance. Safe to say, for you all to come together and help us towards this target makes us really proud, so thank you.

Outdoor activity has a huge potential to enhance our wellbeing, increasing our mental alertness, energy and positive mood. We hope that some of you found your runs and walks calming and enjoyable and that you can take that mindset into the rest of the year, all the while encourage others to do the same. 

Overall, it's been a great week so we wanted to give one final thank you for all your immense support. Mental Health Awareness Week is our annual reminder to take action but although now over, please make sure you all continue to highlight the importance of good mental health and check in on yourselves and each other. 

Onto the next challenge...

We chose this date as it coincides with the first day of Black History Month in the UK, a period used to recognise the contribution and achievements of those with African and Caribbean backgrounds, as well as the immense impact they’ve had on British history.

Earlier this year we lost our close friend and colleague Olisa Odukwe, or Oli as we knew him, at just 20 years of age. Oli was an unbelievable guy, as I'm sure anyone who met him would attest to. Kind, brave and loyal, he was not only a pleasure to work with but he was a great mate to us as a group.

By July, over 2,500 people had already signed up to the waiting list to access therapy. In December, with over £800,000 raised, a fantastic sum aided by your generosity, BMMUK officially launched and began helping those in need.
