Strides Against Stress

Teachers and all school staff are working tirelessly to keep children learning. But working in education during the pandemic has come at a huge personal cost to many.

Symptoms of poor mental health, like insomnia and tearfulness are on the rise. 84% of education staff describe themselves as stressed out.

Many professions are under pressure right now but the cost of teachers being mentally unwell at work is simply too high.  

Children and young people need and deserve to have teachers who are well enough to keep showing up for them - both physically and emotionally. 

That’s why we’re calling on you to sign up to the Strides Against Stress challenge by walking or running at least 30 miles (a mile a day) across the month of April – Stress Awareness Month.

Sign up today and support teachers and school staff facing a mental health crisis.


Just follow these 3 simple steps:

  • Register as an individual or a team by clicking the button above
  • Choose to walk or run 30 miles in April - or double the mileage for the ultimate challenge!
  • Raise £100 to support teachers and other education staff across the UK!

Raise £70 or over and we’ll send you a running vest or t-shirt.
