YG are pleased to offer a number of exciting events that will give you the challenge of a lifetime whilst raising funds for young people who are facing challenges of their own.  Many of these challenges are 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 be directly helping us to improve the physical (and mental health) of the young people we work with - see our Minds Matter campaign page here for more details.
