Over the course of the last 12 months, there has been a huge demand on mental health services and charities, and even the most resilient of people have found themselves struggling at some point. It is therefore even more important than ever that we try to raise funds for our local mental health charity, Dorset Mind.
Sometimes you can find that when your mood is at it’s lowest, all you want to do is stay in bed in your Pyjamas, even though you may know that getting up, dressed and doing any form of exercise, would benefit your mental health. Hence the fancy dress theme of pyjamas for this jaunt.
This is a 4.5ish mile fun run and 1.5 mile kids fun run (adults welcome too) taking place during Mental Health Awareness week with all proceeds going towards the local mental health charity, Dorset Mind.
The run starts from Weymouth Rugby Club. In you can’t make the actual night, you are still welcome to enter and run during the week.
Medals will be presented to all children partaking in the 1.5 mile event, but in order to keep entry prices low and maximise money raised, there will be no medals for the adult event. There will however be a number of prizes for best PJs, etc which will be awarded on the evening.
