Thank you for taking the time to see what we're all about as part of your entry in to The Big Team Run!

Sport in Mind ® is an award winning mental health charity formed in Reading, Berkshire in 2010 with a simple mission:

"To improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems through sport and physical activity"

We are the UK’s leading mental health sports charity and deliver physical activity (sport, walking, dance and movement, gardening and exercise sessions) projects in partnership with the amazing NHS in order to aid recovery, promote mental wellbeing, improve physical health, combat social isolation and empower people to move their lives forward in a positive direction.

We've seen firsthand the positive impact physical activity can have on people's mental health having supported the recovery of thousands of people each year (sporty people and people who say they've never previously liked sport). We believe there's a sport or physical activity out there for everyone and Sport in Mind's aim is to ensure every single person in the country has the opportunity to improve their mental health through a physical activity session they enjoy.

You can find out more about our adult sessions, and youth programme by browsing our website, and read more about how your donations help here

The money you raise really does make a difference to the work we do, improving the lives of more people suffering with mental health problems, across more areas of the country- through the power of sport. 

So.. lace up your running shoes, rally your team of 8 people, and prepare for an unforgettable adventure in The Big Team Run!
