We're Joining #REDJanuary to beat the winter blues!

This January, the Sports Partnership Herefordshire and Worcestershire is getting together for better mental health.

Run in partnership with the leading mental health charity, Mind, RED January is a month-long community initiative. RED (run every day) encourages members of the public to get active, running, splashing, pedalling and jumping every day to 'beat the blues away'.

Last year 1 in 4 people in the UK experienced a mental health problem. This staggering figure equates to 194,415 people in Herefordshire and Worcestershire alone. At SPHW, we've decided to practice what we preach and kick-start our 2020 in a positive way, making this our goal.

We will be dividing in to four teams, all with the ambition of running, walking, swimming, cycling, skipping, hula-walking, crutching (or whatever else gets us moving!) to cover 194,415m throughout January.
