Language Insight’s 1500km Mental Health Fundraiser 2020
Our chosen Charity of the Year 2020-2021 is Mind. Mind raise awareness about mental health problems and campaign to improve mental health services for those who are struggling. Throughout 2020 and the beginning of 2021, we will be hosting several events where we will be aiming to raise money for Mind so that they can continue with the amazing work that they do.
1500km Fitness Challenge
For our first fundraiser, 15 of our staff walked/ran 100km within a 20-day time limit. This means that in total they have completed the distance of 1500km, which is the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats. This event alone has raised more than £1000 for Mind, which is a great start to our year of fundraising.
During the challenge, we asked our staff to update us with their progress. We have now used this footage to create a vlog for our YouTube channel.
