A group of amazing people have, in one weekend, raised a fantastic sum of money for two local organisations. The 4x4x48 challenge earlier this month has raised over £12,500, to be shared between Brecon Mind and Tackle Your Thoughts.
Brecon and District Mind want to say a huge thank you to all involved, those who completed the challenge and their supporters. The funds really will make a difference and help us support more people in need of mental health support in our area.
The group from Caerphilly told us:
“The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic recession have negatively affected many people’s mental health and so we are performing this challenge to raise money and awareness of the importance of looking after one’s mental well-being. The challenge seemed a perfect fit given it will undoubtedly test each runner’s mental strength. Clearly we wanted to raise as much money as we could to help all those that are struggling and who are in real need right now, but whether we were successful in raising £100, £500 or £1000 (our set target), that wasn’t our only goal – if the challenge helped to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and gives somebody the confidence to speak out then our efforts have been a success!We wanted to try help the local (South Wales) community so therefore will be raising money for Brecon and District Mind. We know that you do excellent work and wanted to help in way we could!”
What more can we say – THANK YOU!
