Sporting Events

Competing in a sponsored sports event is a great way to support Oxfordshire Mind - and we’re incredibly grateful to those who choose to do so.

As part of the Oxfordshire Mind Team, you’ll also receive lots of support throughout the process, from training and fundraising tips to a friendly face when you cross the finishing line!

‘An amazing experience for such a fantastic cause. Can’t explain the feeling I got when finishing knowing I raised a lot of money for people like me who have and are struggling. I commend Oxfordshire mind for their fantastic work they do.’
