Run for Team Mentor in 2016

Support Mentor by registering for one of our challenge events for 2016: the British 10k and the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon.

28 January 2016 | Mentor News

Last year, Team Mentor conquered the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, joining 16,000 runners on a beautiful race through three of Her Majesty’s Royal Parks – Hyde Park, Green Park and St. James Park – to raise money and awareness for the important work we and our partners do.

In 2015, we raised almost £3,000 for Mentor and ran a collective distance of 79 miles!

In 2016, we decided to step up our game by running two events!

Funds raised in 2016

In July, two runners took on the British 10k, raising £518 including Gift Aid.

On October 9th, we returned to the beautiful and iconic Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon for a second year, raising a total of £3,200 including Gift Aid.

Total raised: £3718.39
