YoungMinds Newsletter – May 2019


A 10K race… however you want it to be!

Swim, skate, walk or run 10km on any day this June and help raise vital funds and awareness for children and young people’s mental health. 10K Your Way is the most flexible 10K there is – you can do it on any day in June, in any way you want, and anywhere in the world. It’s perfect if you want to walk and talk, cycle, jog, run, swim or even bounce your way to 10K on a space hopper!

And this year, why not get others to join you? You could get a group of friends, family, community groups or schools together to show children and young people the importance of calling on those around you to overcome life’s challenges together. You just need to donate £20 to enter, and in turn you’ll receive a special 10K Your Way medal for your amazing efforts!

Starting the Conversation

Talking to your child about how they’re feeling can be hard. By taking 20 minutes to do an activity you both enjoy, you’ll create a relaxed space to start that conversation. Our #Take20 Hub has lots of fun activity ideas, conversation starters and resources to make talking easier.
