Derby County club ambassador Marc Edworthy and club staff completed the ‘Mind United: Trek the Peak District’ challenge over the weekend.
The EFL last summer agreed a two-year partnership with Mind - the mental health charity - and together are aiming to be game changers over the course of their partnership as their official charity partner.
On Saturday evening a group of dedicated fans and representatives of EFL clubs headed to one of Britain’s most inspiring national parks, the Peak District, for a 12-hour overnight hike challenge to raise money and awareness for mental health.
The challenge was arranged by the EFL and Mind as one of the key events as part of the partnership agreement, with the focus on raising awareness and vital funds.
Edworthy, the former Derby defender, was joined by the Rams’ Chief People Officer Sarah Edwards and ClubDCFC’s Managing Director Lisa Biesty.
It was a test of fitness, endurance and team spirit and the Derby trio came through to complete the challenge.
Whether you’re a star striker or a season ticket holder, with one in four people experiencing a mental health problem, the EFL and Mind believe that no one should have to live in fear about opening up and are using the power of football to improve the nation’s wellbeing.
