We all know that the coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on our mental health and we also know that doing physical activity can help improve our wellbeing. It can help with better sleep, happier moods and help us manage stress and anxiety.
At the end of this week, we will be launching a very exciting event, The Big Rotary Cornish Coastal Footpath Challenge, lead by the Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen. We are inviting the 29 Rotary Clubs across Cornwall to join us in raising mental health awareness and funds through sponsorship during the month of August.
Each club will be asked to walk one or several sections of the Cornish coastal path and invite family and friends to join them. It’s a team effort and our motto for the event is that ‘a good walk can do wonders for your mental well-being’. Cornwall Mind has a team of enthusiastic staff and volunteers ready to walk and help raise those vital funds.
Social distancing will be easy to maintain and the 285 miles of Cornish scenery will be stunning. Our joint efforts can help us to make a significant impact on mental health support in Cornwall in addition to encouraging us to look after our own mental wellbeing.
A big thank you to Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen rotary-ribi.org for leading on this, and thank you to all Rotary Clubs that are taking part, your involvement is really appreciated and we can’t wait to launch the event with you on Saturday the 1st of August.
Updates and news will be posted on Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen website and our social media platforms.
