Mile for Mind
On the morning of Tuesday, 11 May, Argyle will participate in an EFL-wide activity to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.
Participants from various Argyle Community Trust projects - including the Trust’s regular walking group and the Tackling Loneliness scheme - will join with Club and Trust staff to walk the ‘Mile for Mind’ – four and a half times around the perimeter of the hallowed Home Park turf.
Individuals taking part can walk, hop, skip, jump or run their ‘Mile for Mind’, with the event organised to be as inclusive as possible for all ages and abilities.
Mind, the EFL’s Official Charity, delivers mental health awareness and support projects throughout the UK. With one in four people reported to be affected by mental health problems before the pandemic and lockdown struck, the services offered by Mind and the Trust are more important than ever.
Emma Potter, organising the event on behalf of the Argyle Community Trust, said: “We are very excited to be hosting the ‘Mile for Mind’ event next week.
“For many of our participants, this will mark a significant milestone in the pandemic, coming back to the stadium that means so much to them. More than that, though, it is an opportunity to get some exercise for a good cause, and hopefully raise some funds for important mental health projects in the process.”
A fundraising page for the event is now open, with proceeds going towards Mind’s vital work in supporting mental health.
