One Day. Two Relays. No Breaks. On 29 September 2018, the Mini Mermaid and Young Tritons Running Club UK invite everyone to join them for the 2nd Annual ‘Dawn ‘Til Dusk” Challenge, held in Leeds and London. The challenge will raise funds to bring Mini Mermaid and Young Triton Running Club programmes to more schools and community centres across the country in areas of need.
Mini Mermaid and Young Tritons Running Club UK work with girls and boys, between 7-11, to change their internal dialogues and strengthen their belief in their worth, value and ability to connect and impact their communities, whilst experiencing the correlation between movement and positive mental, physical and emotional health.
The four-year programmes, which run in six and eight week blocks, combine two key elements:
First started in Leeds in 2015 by UK director Hannah Corne, Mini Mermaid and Young Tritons programmes now run in more than 100 schools and community centres in the UK. The programmes tackle key issues facing young people across the UK today, including low self-esteem, fear of failure and lack of physical activity. Through work with education, sports and psychology experts, the programmes explore the intersection of those issues and empowers children to manage them through strong mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
The challenge, open to anyone and everyone, has a suggested donation of £10. Team captains will lead 30 or 60 minutes blocks. Everyone else can join in for a little or as much time as they like. To sign up, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in acting as a team captain of a time slot, please let us know and include a time you would prefer.
Participants can donate on the Dawn 'Til Dusk GoFundMe page. 100 percent of all net proceeds go to delivering Mini Mermaid and Young Triton programmes in the UK. So lace up your trainers, grab your family and friends and come join the fun at one of two locations.
