Simplyhealth are proud to announce, Mind, as our official charity partner for the SimplyHealth Great Run Series 2018.
Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone suffering from a mental health problem, believing no one should have to face the experience alone.
Mind, who campaign to improve services and promote understanding - giving millions of people immediate support online, through helplines, publications and face-to-face counsel - is a perfect fit for Simplyhealth’s purpose; helping people make the most of life through everyday health, and our initiative to get #millionsmoving.
The physical benefits that come from an active lifestyle are undeniable - moving more through regular exercise improves everything about your being. Regular exercise keeps your heart happy, reduces your risk of developing a long list of chronic illnesses and diseases and arguably most importantly, physical activity is hugely beneficial to mental wellbeing. It alleviates stress, boredom and anxiety, helps with better sleep and boosts energy levels.
Over the last four years, over 7,000 Mind supporters have taken part in a Great Run Series event, raising more than £1.3m and, as the official charity partner for the Simplyhealth Great Run Series, Mind hope to raise even more funds in 2018, to continue their important work.
Jointly, it is within our gift to make a real difference in this critical area of everyday healthcare and to help even more people make the most of life.
