About the event

The outbreak of coronavirus is affecting all our lives in lots of different ways. With cancellations and postponements of hundreds of runs, walks, and cycle rides, Mind has been left struggling to maintain our usual income through fundraising events.

As we start to feel the impact of coronavirus on our mental health, it's more important than ever that we take steps to look after ourselves and our wellbeing. Keeping active is a big part of this for so many people. So, whether it's running through the park on your own, walking around the garden as a family, or a doing a 10k round the streets, get creative and run the Mind logo squiggle to support us. Join Team Mind today and run the squiggle!

How to get involved

Get inventive and mix up your normal running route by trying to run the Mind logo squiggle and see how close you can get. From 1k to 15k – whatever distance you run can make a difference. Map your run on strava, fitbit or whatever tracking app you use and post the results. Then make a donation to our campaign and nominate your loved ones to join the challenge as well. Just run, donate £8, and nominate!

Donating £8 to Mind could cover the cost of one call to our infoline service, providing people with vital advice and information at the time they need it most.

See who can squiggle it best. After you've done your run and made your donation, don't forget to nominate your friends and family to get active and support Mind by running the squiggle. Help us inspire others by sharing your squiggle route on social media. Use the hashtag #RunTheSquiggle to be part of the campaign.

Physical activity and your mental health

"I've always found that exercise is the one thing that gets me well again, with depression, it's invaluable. It makes me feel great, just healthy and active. I don't feel as tired or lethargic when I exercise and it makes me happy and content in myself."
