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.

By fundraising for Oxfordshire Mind you’re helping us to continue to offer services and support for those struggling with mental health problems throughout Oxfordshire.

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!
