Home > News & events > An Update from Sam: Run with Mind CHWF


My name’s Sam and I lead on event fundraising for Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest. I come bearing good news for all of our runners, and all those who love a challenge.

After our exceptional experience at the London Landmarks and Hackney Half marathons – we are delighted to be involved in the Vitality London 10k. 

Getting involved with challenge events like marathons is a really rewarding aspect of our work as a charity. It allows us to connect with our community, raise funds for our work, and help others achieve their personal goals. A win-win-win right?

We had over 220 runners with us between the London Landmarks and Hackney Half, and collectively, they raised over £120,000 for the charity – which we’ll use to support a variety of services that are available to the community.

This September, we’re delighted to be involved in the Vitality 10k – a 10k run through the heart of London, that brings professional athletes and casual runners together for the day.

So, if you like running and want to support our charity, purchase a ticket here! We’ll support you through the whole process, and of course, will be there to cheer you on during the day.

If you have any questions, then get in touch with us by sending an email to community.fundraising@mindchwf.org.uk.

Other than that, all the best, and I hope to see you at a challenge event soon!
