Take on a 50 for 50 challenge

Over the past 50 years a lot has changed for those of us severely affected by mental illness, but there's still vital work to do. 

To mark our 50th anniversary, we’re encouraging our amazing fundraisers to take on a 50-themed challenge to help shape our future.

Whether you run 50 miles for a month, write 50 poems in a weekend, or host a quiz for 50 mates, we want you to get creative.

Below is a starter for 50 to whet your appetite. Pick one, tweak one, think of your own! Once you’ve decided on your challenge, sign up and kick off your fundraising.
