56 for the 56% Challenge

Posted 03.08.2021

Over the last month, the Rhodes Wealth Management team have been walking, running or cycling in an effort to complete the equivalent distance of 56 marathons (yes that’s 2,363km!) to raise money for a very worthy cause. Yesterday, with smiles on our faces, we completed that challenge with a team walk in Willington, Derbyshire.

Throughout July, RWM took the opportunity to support YMCA Derbyshire with their “56 for the 56%” campaign. A recent consultation with young people living at YMCA Derbyshire showed that 56% struggle with their mental health. This campaign has been created to raise funds for additional wellbeing provisions such as equipment for cooking and access to the gym. This has been especially vital during the recent pandemic. For further information on the campaign, please visit https://ymcaderbyshire.org.uk/56-for-the-56-mental-health-campaign/

Thank you to everyone who took part in this challenge and everyone who has shown their support and donated through our fundraising page. There is still time to donate if you can through the following link https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/RhodesWealthManagement

We hope to continue to support this fantastic charity – watch this space!
