UPDATE IN DESCRIPTION University Mental Health Day - commUNIty

Help in the community around us at King's!


UPDATE: Due to the weather we are having to cancel the Group Run today. As an alternative, if you still want to keep active, we can offer a gym based activity and a spin style class on Keiser bikes! This will be at the King's Sport Health and Fitness Waterloo Gym where the run would have been starting from.

It's University Mental Health Day at King's! For this special lunch time run GoodGym and the King's Wellbeing Team have organised a special task for us in the local community. We are visiting Oasis Farm Waterloo to help prepare some planters so they are ready for seeds and hopefully this will improve the air quality around the Waterloo area.

University Mental Health Day is the national campaign to focus efforts on promoting the mental health of everybody, and this year the theme is community. We are encouraging all university students and staff in the King's community to get involved!

We will be meeting at the King's Sport Health and Fitness Waterloo Gym, where you can leave your bags (bring a lock for a locker!), at midday. Once the task is complete we will return to King's by 1.30pm, stopping off to do a fitness session on the way back.

There is a safe place to leave your bags and get changed, plus we always have a back marker so nobody is ever left behind.

GoodGym King's would not be possible without help from King's London Office and King's Sport.

Date and time

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
