Our team smash fundraising targets at the 2022 TTP Cambridge Half-Marathon

A very grey start on the morning of Sunday 6th March 2022 turned out to be a spectacular event day for our team. With a team of over 40 runners taking part in this year’s TTP Cambridge Half Marathon, an outstanding £19,000 was raised to support us.  

A very grey start on the morning of Sunday 6th March 2022 turned out to be a spectacular event day for our team. With a team of over 40 runners taking part in this year’s TTP Cambridge Half Marathon, an outstanding £19,000 was raised to support us.

 

Alongside 14,000 other runners, our team completed the route which took them through the beautiful city of Cambridge passing countless historical landmarks along the 13.1 mile course, running through King’s and Jesus Colleges and out to the stunning village of Grantchester. The weather was on their side throughout the race and even the sun was shining at one point.

 

Our staff and volunteers spent the day in the events village supporting the runners before and after the race, cheering them over the finish line. Gary Sutcliffe, our Fundraising Manager says, “It was absolutely fantastic to be at the race and meet all our brilliant runners. They have trained so hard over the long dark winter and to see them off, and cheer them home, was incredibly inspiring. They have raised such a brilliant sum of money too, and we are so very grateful for all their support and hope to see them all again next year.”

 

Gary continues, “I must add a big shout out to those runners who managed to smash their personal best times on the day and those that were running a half marathon for the very first time. Well done you all did so well, and we are so proud and honoured to have had your support at the race.”

 

The benefits of exercise and getting outdoors on our mental health are well documented, especially after such a difficult few years with the Covid-19 pandemic. This, and similar events, are a fantastic way to follow the Five Ways to Wellbeing – connect, be active, learn, take notice and give.

 

Gary says, “As your local mental health charity, we are passionate about positive wellbeing and providing support to people who experience mental health challenges. We cannot do that without all the hard work and dedication we get from all our fundraisers. So, thank you everyone who took part in this year’s race, we really couldn’t do it without you and look forward to seeing you next year.”
