Pre-registration for the 9th Annual Fun Run is now open. The date of the event is the 24th of August and the event will again take place in Cunningsburgh. The pre-registration will be open for 6 weeks and closes on the 18th of July 2014.

The event is important for the local charity and provides an opportunity to encourage everyone to remember that a healthy mind goes hand in hand with a healthy body. The Fun Run and Walk is now in its 9th year and Mind Your Head are hopeful that people will again come forward to take part in either the 5k or 10k route.

Chris Wright, Project Worker with the charity said “No matter your age, gender, fitness level or capability we would love to see you on the day. We want you to join us and have fun and to take a moment to remember how important it is to be open and honest about mental health and wellbeing.”

The aim of the fun run and walk is to get people from all communities and walks of life to come together to promote and raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental ill-health. This year’s event is sponsored by TL Dallas and they have been helping with the design of the t shirt and will be there on the day to see the event unfold.

The Fun Run will again be taking place in Cunningsburgh this year. This is due to safer routes and better parking facilities in the area. For those that wish to see the routes then they are shown on the charity’s website.
