Corona Virus has impacted our lives and over 60% of people’s mental health.
Our neighbours at the studios Mind in Mid Herts have just launched a new initiative, the Spring into Health Challenge, to help them support the growing number of people dealing with mental health difficulties in Hertfordshire.
Everyone is invited to become a Healthy Springer and to set their challenging target of covering the distance around the perimeter of Hertfordshire that’s 170 miles!! This is a virtual event where you can monitor your progress on an interactive map and can take part individually or as a team (lockdown restrictions apply). In addition this challenge will support your mental wellbeing and physical health.
As a Healthy Springer, you can choose any method to achieve all or part of your challenge : Run, Jog, Walk, Skip, Jump, Bounce, Swim (when possible)
There’s plenty of time to make the most of this fun challenge which starts on Monday 18th January 2021 and springs through to Friday 16th April. The timescale and fabulous online tracking app allows everyone to complete the distance at times and on days that suit them.
Access & Engagement Manager for Mind in Mid Herts, Adele Hemmings said “This event is for everyone. It will not only help us to raise money to help continue to support the people of Hertfordshire but will be fun to participate in, supporting participants known as Healthy Springers in maintaining their health and having some fun in these tricky times. We are champions of the “5 ways to wellbeing”: getting active; connecting with others; giving up your time to support others, acknowledging your achievements and triumphs and learning how you can make a difference. All of this is embedded within this Event and means that participants will be making a difference to their own, and others health. Every penny raised will go back into the vital mental health services we provide”.
