Chelsea Foundation and Mind to host first stadium stair climb

From the official Chelsea FC website:

Ahead of World Mental Health Day, Chelsea Foundation and Mind will join together to host the first stadium stair climb at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 7 October.

The unique fundraising opportunity will see both organisations raise awareness for better mental health, with participants seeing how many circuits of Stamford Bridge and the West Stand they can complete in 90 minutes. Each lap is approximately one kilometre with an elevation of 200 feet.

The exclusive experience will also allow participants to go behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge, visiting the changing rooms, press room and other areas of the home of Chelsea FC before walking out of the famous tunnel area.

Reece James said: ‘It’s great that Chelsea Foundation are working alongside Mind for a stadium stair climb at Stamford Bridge ahead of World Mental Health Day.

‘Life can be mentally challenging in a variety of ways, so it is important to stay both mentally and physically healthy, and this will be a fantastic opportunity for fans or anyone suffering from mental health to join together for some fun activity at the home of Chelsea.’

To take part in the event there is a £50 registration fee and a fundraising target of £300. There is limited capacity with spaces allocated on a first come first serve basis.

People can sign up to the stadium stair climb here.

One in four will be affected by a mental health problem this year. Mind is a charity fighting for mental health. They provide information, support and advice and campaign for change so everyone with a mental health problem gets support and respect.

Fundraising at the stadium stair climb could fund vital services like Mind’s Infoline and 24/7 peer support platform, so no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
