RB Mind join Marathon Walk Challenge
On Saturday, 17 October, RB Mind took part in a Marathon Walk with Citizen’s Advice Richmond, Richmond AID and Ruils to raise funds to support services for local residents in crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the first time we joined forces with these local charities in a fundraising event.
Led by each charity’s CEO, 30 participants – all walking in socially distanced groups no greater than six – donned walking boots and took on the 26.2 mile challenge. Starting at 8.30am in front of the iconic London Eye, the hike followed the Thames past landmarks including the Houses of Parliament, Battersea Power Station and Kew Gardens. The marathon’s final miles took participants through the Borough of Richmond itself, before finishing early evening at the historic Hampton Court Palace.
You can still make donations for Team RB Mind here. It would be really appreciated.
Funds raised by the marathon challenge will enable us to offer more befriending, counselling, group activities and crisis support to both existing clients, and those reaching out for help for the first time.
