Student Runs 10K Every Day to Raise Money for Mental Health Awareness Week

13 May 2021

A Sheffield student has planned a fundraiser to run 10k every day this week.

Alfie Dickenson, 20, is completing the challenge for this year’s mental health awareness week.

Despite only being on day 3 out of 7 of his fundraising journey, Alfie has already achieved his personal goal of raising ‎£550.

He is now determined to raise as much money as possible by the end of the week.

He plans to donate the money to his charity of choice, Mind , which provides free support and care for those struggling with mental health issues.

Alfie has shared what inspired him to take on this challenge, what struggles he has faced along the way, and whether he will make this an annual event.
