Mindstep: July Fundraising
Thank you to the Mindstep Foundation for sharing the following article:
A huge thank you to our amazing fundraisers who helped raised thousands for Mindstep this month.
In July 2022, Harry Noel-Smith and James Smith completed an Ironman each (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and 26.2 mile run) in the UK and Austria. Both completed this incredible feat in under 13 hours!
Amy Cracknell and Sue Birch also took on the Ipswich Inflatable 5km to raise money for Mindstep.
Harry Noel-Smith, Founder of Kinetic Kitchen said :
“Having experienced some mental stresses over the past couple years of running a business, and having seen people close to me affected by mental health issues, I decided to raise money for the amazing Mindstep Foundation. I truly believe the research that they are funding is incredibly valuable for the future of our mental health. It was something I used for motivation whilst completing my recent Ironman in Austria.
Physically, this challenge was very tolling on my body (especially on the marathon), however, my main mental focus was to be present throughout all 3 disciplines. This actually allowed me, dare I say it, to enjoy the full course!”
Thank you to our amazing fundraisers – we couldn’t do it without you.
