Omagh Half Marathon
Mates in Mind are proud to launch the fundraising challenge ‘Every Step Counts’ to both encourage individual’s to get moving in a way which works for them, while raising vital funds which will help the charity to continue to support workplaces across the UK. Together in virtual teams or as an individual, the challenge will be to achieve a sponsored 100 miles in steps, within two weeks. Be this around the flat or as part of a daily exercise routine, every step will count.
Running from 15-30 June this event will help raise vital funds to support the mental health of workforces across the UK.
As we navigate these uncertain times, the whole team here at Mates in Mind would like to thank you for fundraising or planning to fundraise for our charity.
Your donations and support are what enables our charity to continue helping organisations across the UK to improve and prioritise the mental health and wellbeing of their workforces, providing them the skills, clarity and confidence to invest in the health of their people.
Within this strange period of time, we know that many planned events and fundraisers will have to be postponed or cancelled altogether, and to those too, we would like to say a huge thank you because we know the organisation and commitment that will have gone into your planning.
We would like to encourage all those who still wish to fundraise for us to do so- in a different way. Firstly, we recommend all fundraisers go digital with their donation pages, which can be found in the ways to donate below.
Fundraisers can switch their chosen fundraising activtiy to one which can be done remotely/ at home.See our list of home fundraising activties herehere!
You can also turn unwanted goods into donations for charity too through Virgin Money Giving's new partnership.
We are also asking that our community, where possible, to please consider a further donation to Mates in Mind to help us continue to develop accessible new programmes and support that we know will be badly needed, especially to reach down supply chains to the most vulnerable employees during these difficult times.

“I felt really proud to run The London Marathon in my Mates in Mind running vest. I think the work you do is invaluable and is something I feel a real personal connection to. When I started work as a young female site engineer I was very unusual and it made working life tough at times. To fit in I felt I had to behave like the men around me and not show any emotions even when things were difficult. Anything we can do to make the industry more understanding and aware of mental health has got to be a good thing.”
