Make 13.1 miles count in your local community by joining #TeamM+ at Mentoring Plus

Join the 15,000 runners in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath on 15 March 2020. We have 30 Silver bond places including 5 places for volunteer mentors.

Over thirty runners raised over £12,000 for Mentoring Plus in 2019 to help support young people with educational, family, health and emotional needs. The Bath Half is our biggest annual fundraising event and we would love you to join us.

Mentoring Plus trains and supports adult volunteer mentors from the local community of B&NES, matching them one-to-one with young people aged 7-21. Every child and teenager needs adult support to help them feel happy and fulfil their potential. Some need more help than others: those coping with serious family issues, problems at school, or the effects of poverty.

Without help, young people may be at risk of isolation, school exclusion or offending, with all the financial, social and emotional costs this can bring for a lifetime.

“Mentoring is a good distraction from stuff at home. I look forward to my mentoring sessions and I like trying new things with my mentor” [Mentee aged 16]

How your money helps

It takes £3000 a year to support mentoring and activities for a young person by a trained practioner

Your fundraising could make a direct contribution towards helping a young person fulfil their potential, keep out of trouble and contribute positively in turn.

We’re a community charity and we take proper care of our community fundraisers – especially the ones pounding the streets for 13 miles. We are looking forward to welcoming you… happy running!
