The May 5k Challenge:
York Road project (YRP) work tirelessly around the clock to provide tailored support to each of our clients. Throughout May YRP are sharing stories about the importance of getting outside, either for a walk, run or even a cycle. It is safe to say, off the back of this campaign many people have taken themselves outside, sharing their stories of how it helps them with us.
YRP's Chief Executive, Cherisse Dealtry regularly runs trails and entered into several fundraising events so knew the benefit of hosting a 'Walk with us' event, encouraging people to join YRP staff, volunteers and clients with upping our step counts. The aim of YRP's walk is to bring people together, focusing on mental health and well-being, understanding that numerous things in people’s lives could impact greatly on how we see the world, which can potentially contribute to the reason why someone may become homeless and need our help.
As part of the overall May 5k challenge, we YRP have asked if you could walk 5k and raise awareness of some of the issues those we support face.
