Do the Monster Dash for MindWise

This Hallowe'en, join our virtual family friendly spooktacular where you can walk, jog, hopscotch, cycle or wheel in your scariest costume and raise money for people affected by mental illness in Northern Ireland.

Don't let that trick or treat costume go to waste!

2020 has been tough on all of us, but people living with mental illness are living through the pandemic cut off from vital services and support. Through our 30 services, MindWise are there for over 10,000 people a year and we want to reach even more people who need us through our services and our website.

You can help. Hallowe'en will look a bit different this year.  While there may be few parties or Trick or Treaters, don't let that costume go to waste!

Sign up to our Monster Dash and run, jog, hopscotch, cycle, walk or wheel the distance of your choice with your family, or by undertake your own Monster Marathon.

Do something a bit different this Hallowe'en and raise much needed funds that will support thousands of people affected by mental illness in Northern Ireland.
