Bath Half 2019
17th March 2019
As a mental health charity, Bath Mind promotes exercise to help maintain wellbeing and boost energy.
That’s why taking part in the Bath Half Marathon is such a good way to support us, and just one of the reasons why it is important to choose Bath Mind.
By joining our team you will help us provide support to everyone in Bath & North East Somerset who experiences mental distress or may be at risk of poor mental health.
In 2017 team Bath Mind raised a fantastic £14,000 with a total of 32 runners. In 2018 we had almost 70 runners including a corporate team and managed to raise a staggering £19,000 despite the cancelled race. This year we have 60 charity places to fill and aim to raise £16,000 – £18,000 which will enable Bath Mind to re-invigorate the befriending scheme, reaching out to isolated people to improve their confidence, build social networks and reduce social isolation and loneliness. The befriending role acts as a bridge between them and their wider community.
How can I run for Bath Mind in 2019?

The first simple step you need to make is to inform Hannah Roper that you want to run for Team Bath Mind by emailing [email protected] or telephone 01225 617981.

We ask that you raise a minimum of £200 to be paid within two months of the race. Bath Mind is registered with Virgin Money Giving so that you can create your own donation page to make it easier for your supporters to sponsor you.
