Mind Your Head
The 2012 Fun Run took place on 19 August with a record 653 participants. As the sun shone over the Boddam Park, the whole place had a fantastic vibrant atmosphere.
The MYH team would like to thank Injury Shetland for part sponsoring this year’s t-shirts. Thanks also to JA and GD Nicolson, Dunrossness Hall Committee, Boddam Sports Pavilion, Raynet, and The Shetland Football association for their continued support of the event.
Thanks also to British Red Cross for the First Aid cover and Tesco for supplying the water and fruit.
The fantastic vibe continued in the hall where the Shetland Rugby Club wowed us all with their delicious collection of cakes. Thanks must also go to our team of face painters and children’s activities helper Vicki Morrison.
Most of all the MYH team would like to thank all the runners and walkers who took part. Your continued support is so much appreciated. Mind Your Head Co-coordinator Jenny Teale said that the atmosphere and support was electric. It was fantastic to see so many taking time out to come along and support Mind Your Head and to reflect on what we as a community can do help reduce the stigma of mental ill health. The walk gives everyone the time and space to talk openly and recognize their own mental health.
It is anticipated that the event will have raised around £5,000.
