Yoyo: Around the Weald.

News

P1070250.jpg

Overwhelmed, hugely relieved and a little delirious, we’re incredibly happy to announce that all of the team completed the Around the Weald challenge of 27.5 miles in just 10 hours and 50 minutes. We can’t thank everyone enough for the generous donations and support provided in the last few months as we prepared for this huge challenge. Our final total comes to £1470 and every single penny will go towards supporting Mind and ensuring no one has to face a mental health problem alone. So once again, thank you.

Here are a few photos to show you what we got up to throughout the day.

Final stretch - Mile 26, lots of laughter, pain, yelping, and delirium. At this point, not even the awesome views could help.
