YG are pleased to offer a number of exciting events that will give you the challenge of a lifetime while raising funds for young people who are facing challenges of their own.  Many of the challenges faced by young people in Gloucestershire can be linked to poor mental-health brought on by a host of social challenges but also because of poor physical health and low activity levels.  Those of you who undertake your own physical challenge will not only help us improve the mental and physical health of young people we work with, but you will also be improving their prospects for the future.
