Join the team to run the Hackney Half on Sun 30 April and support Core Arts!

We're big fans of the work of Core Arts in Hackney so we're putting a team of runners together to take on the Run Hackney Half Marathon on Sun 30 April 2017 to help support them!

This 13.1 mile route takes you all around Hackney and goes past both Grow and Core Arts along the way so we think it's the perfect combo to get fit, have fun and raise some money for this amazing charity - all at the same time.

Core Arts has 23 years experience in providing best practice and best value in Mental Health Creative Day Care in London. They promote positive mental health and wellbeing through creative learning. Providing quality education, training, employment and social enterprise initiatives that enable people who experience mental health issues to overcome barriers, fulfill their potential and participate fully in their community.

Everyday they show how art can change lives and demonstrate just how vital art is!
