QPR Healthy Kickers Snowdon Challenge 13/05/2015

On 30th May 2015 20 service users, fans, coaches and volunteers will take on a big challenge and climb Mount Snowdon in aid of our mental well-being project called QPR Healthy Kickers. This event will raise awareness of mental well-being and how important it is to look after your mental health.

 
The Healthy Kickers is a project which uses physical activity to improve mental well-being through walking, going to the gym and playing football.  A key objective of the project is promoting the awareness of removing the stigma around mental health issues. The project is funded by the Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.  The project is run in partnership with local mental well-being charities; Brent Mind, Hammersmith and Fulham Mind, Park Royal Mental Health Services, SMART and Cyrenians.
 
 
Conor Mc Brearty Inclusive Projects Manager said “It will be a big challenge for all the participants to complete the ascent of Mount Snowdon.  This is a great event to raise awareness of mental well-being in a very positive way.  All the money raised will go back into providing for the project, so if you are able to, please dig deep to support the walkers”.
 
The team has set up a fundraising page and all proceeds will go directly to the project to sustain it in the future.  There is a target of £5000 to raise, to contribute towards this please go to: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/QPRHealthykickers
