Mental Elf 2023 Sponsorship Opportunities
We are hosting our biggest fundraising event on Sunday 10th December, and to make it a magical event for all, we need your help!
Mental Elf, a 5km fun run, was created by Lancashire Mind in 2014 and traditionally takes place on the last weekend in November or the first weekend in December each year.
A unique event which focuses on bringing people together, not only to fundraise, but to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing. It promotes the benefits of physical activity, connecting people and doing something to help others.Read more
