10 May We’re doing 5ks this May for Student Minds
Team Prime Student Living are smashing out the 5ks this May for Student Minds, the UK’s student mental health charity. We’ll be running, walking, cycling, riding, swimming to get our 5ks in… it’s about getting out and feeling good while you’re doing it – all whilst giving back to charity.
Not only is exercise incredibly beneficial for our mental wellbeing, but Prime Student Living are making a donation to Student Minds for every team member who does 5k in May!
5k May is a national event held by Run For Heroes. Run for Heroes is an incorporated charity born in 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They raised over £7 million for NHS Charities after releasing the viral Instagram challenge; run 5k, donate £5 and nominate 5 others.
In a matter of months the campaign had spread across the world, raising an additional £1 million for local charities fighting the effects of the pandemic.
Today they are an incorporated charity and on a mission to get as many people active as possible while raising vital funds for health and wellbeing initiatives.
And Team Prime Student Living on board! Coppergate’s Property Manager (Dan) will be running down the stunning Swansea coastline, Howard Garden’s Property Manager (Alexandra) will be cycling to get her kms in, and our Managing Director, Joanne, is making it a team event – watch this space to find out more! Not forgetting Hayley, from Trinity View, who is so determined to take part… even if it starts off as a casual jogand ends in a sweaty Hayley rolling over the 5k mark – we believe in you Hayley!
Fancy getting involved? You can do your 5k anywhere, anytime, with anyone! You can run, roll, walk, cycle or even swim… It’s all about getting out and feeling good while you’re doing it – all whilst giving back to charity.
