Local Walkers Go The Extra Mile For Mental Health

Calderdale mental health charity is lucky to have three local people ready to step up to the challenge and walk 26.2 miles in the first ever 100, 000 person Marathon: this year’s official Virgin Money Virtual London Marathon.

On Sunday 3rd October, Anneliese, Jim and Louise will take on the world’s greatest marathon ‘virtually’ and walk Healthy Minds’ own marathon route through Calderdale.

The gutsy walkers will be completing the official Virgin Money Virtual London Marathon in Calderdale to raise funds for the local mental health charity, Healthy Minds, who provide vital support for people across Calderdale.

Team Healthy Minds are just three of the 50,000 participants taking part in the virtual event. Another 50,000 will run the traditional Virgin Money London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall.

Instead of heading to London, our local team will be walking from Todmorden to Halifax, passing through the local communities that Healthy Minds work with and provide for.

Poor mental health has and continues to be a huge challenge for many across England, with economically disadvantaged and younger people suffering more throughout the pandemic. The three local people taking on the Marathon challenge hope to shine a light on the local needs for mental health services.
