Edit….Claire and I have new team Mates: Nia, Emily and Suzie who are fundraising and doing the peaks with us! They are great fun, if a little fit for my liking, but also believe in why we are doing this….See Below and donate if you can 😁
Claire and I are taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, fundraising for North Yorkshire Sport as we go!
Claire and I share a love for walking but have never taken on a challenge this big before. Our usual jaunts tend to involve our families, Millie the dog and frequently end in a pub! So this is a huge undertaking for both of us.
North Yorkshire Sport are a charity who are passionate about driving positive change through physical activity and sport – They are committed to making a positive difference in people’s lives, and this is why we are taking part in this fundraising event.
The funds we raise are being directed into work and programmes that directly support mental health using the power of sport and physical activity. This could be training for the workforce of coaches and volunteers who support grassroots activity, or to support specific projects in the county, for example the wellbeing programme ‘Achieve’ which supports young people to build their wellbeing and resilience through working with a sporting athlete mentor.
Claire and I have both seen and felt the Impact of poor mental health support for children and young people, so are passionate about ensuring the great projects supported through North Yorkshire Sport have the funding to reach more people and positively impact those who most need them.
Thanks for taking the time to learn more about why we are doing this.
Claire and Helen
