Miles For Mind
30 April 2020 (by admin)
During May we are asking staff and parents to get involved in the Miles For Mind Challenge
Dear Parents and Carers
Whilst we are away from school it is more important than ever to keep active (physically and mentally) and also keep connected with friends and family.
At Woodland Grange our staff have set a challenge and we want you to sign up and take part as well. During the month of May some of the staff will be taking part in the Miles for Mind challenge (organised by Runr).
The challenge is simple. Sign up online by visiting www.runr.co.uk/products/2020-miles-for-mind-team-entry. Click on ‘Join existing team’ and choose Woodland Grange. You can choose the distance you want to run/walk (during the whole of May). There are 7 set distances: 25 miles, 50 miles, 75 miles, 100 miles, 125 miles, 150 miles and a whopping 200 miles! You can go as far as you like. So, whatever your ability, sign up and start clocking up the Miles for Mind, in support of mental health awareness. It will cost £13.95 for a team entry. You can also set up a Just Giving Page to boost your fundraising, if you wish. There is an official page and we will publicise this, along with updates, during May. Twitter messages will use #runr and #MilesForMind.
100% of the money that we raise (including the entry fee) will go towards this charity which supports people with their mental health. At this terrible time, it is more important than ever to maintain the work that these charities are doing. People have lost loved ones and are facing many uncertainties, they need our help.
At the end of the month take a screenshot of your efforts during the month (any device will do: Garmin, Strava even good old pencil and paper!) Send your results to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive a special Miles for Mind Medal. We will send out team reminders during May.
There is even a special entry for children. More details can be found by visiting www.runr.co.uk/products/2020-miles-for-mind.
We hope that parents will take up this challenge, let’s get moving! Good Luck and remember: choose team Woodland Grange.
