Tough Mudder 5K

My name is Chris and I am running the Tough Mudder 5K to raise money and awareness for North Kent Mind. Mental health is an area that has fascinated and been important to me since I was around 13/14 years old. The reason I have chosen Tough Mudder 5k is because it is one of the most challenging things I’ve heard of. It involves tackling 13 obstacles across a 5k distance, which is going to take a lot of preparation and hard work from me if I want to be able to complete it!

My initial aim is to raise £250.00. However, I’m really hoping to be able to keep upping that target with all of your help! Hopefully raising this much will be able to help train people in the local community to aid with people’s mental health difficulties – the more people we have with the skills to help, the more people could be helped in the long run.

Tough Mudder 5K


My name is Katie Barker and on the 21st of September 2019 I am planning on taking part in the Tough Mudder 5k for North Kent Mind. I have chosen North Kent Mind because I feel the work they do is very important in potentially saving people’s lives. As a agoraphobia mentor volunteer I have heard of and seen the support North Kent Mind provides for people and the benefits this has on their lives from giving them the confidence to tackle their anxieties to helping them understand their mental illness. Since North Kent Mind work tirelessly to support us, I wanted to do something to help support them by raising my target of £250. Hopefully, this money will go back into the Wellbeing Services and provide more people with agoraphobia the support they need to change their lives. I have chosen Tough Mudder because it is a massive challenge for me and requires my time and dedication, just as North Kent Mind give to others.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Vitality London 10,000 – MAY 2019

My name is Harley and I am running the London Vitality 10,000 this May to raise money and awareness for North Kent Mind. I have served as a Trustee for North Kent Mind since January 2014 and was elected as Chair of the Board in 2017. My first experience of our organisation was as a Student (in 2012). I am very pleased I had this experience as it challenged me to think about mental health differently. I am passionate about supporting those who may need a helping hand or a listening ear at times, whether by providing services or challenging stigma and discrimination within society, because I care about fairness and respect for all. Society seems mostly to forgive and accept those with physical illnesses, but those suffering with mental health issues or difficulties can be shunned and treated unfairly. This is simply not fair, and whilst things are improving, there is still a lot of work to do in this area.
