Guest campaigns: May 2020
Here at MNHQ, we think it makes sense to use the not-inconsiderable might of the Mumsnet collective for the greater good. That's why we regularly exchange links and public support with charities and pressure groups in areas Mumsnetters are interested in, such as special needs provision, child poverty, childcare, parenting, breastfeeding, maternity care and relationship support.
Samaritans has launched ‘Samarathon’, a virtual marathon, as an exciting fundraising initiative that encourages supporters to run, jog or walk a marathon in their own time over the month of July.
Samaritans wants to motivate more people to get active to improve their mental wellbeing, rather than focus on a physical endurance challenge that requires participants to run 26.2 miles in one stretch. That’s why ‘Samarathon’ invites the nation to go at their own pace, take part this summer and raise money to help Samaritans be there for those struggling to cope.
Registration is now open, via the dedicated website https://samarathon.samaritans.org/
