March in March for veterans’ mental health charity Combat Stress

Put your best foot forward this March.

With thousands of former servicemen and women seeking mental health treatment each year, we are running our popular fundraising challenge March in March for the fourth consecutive year.

Complete 10 miles during March, give your mental and physical health a much-needed boost, and raise funds to enable us to continue delivering our life-changing services. Submit evidence of your achievement and you’ll receive a special commemorative medal.

The event costs just £20 to register to take part. Participants are also encouraged to try to raise as much as they can in sponsorship. To find out more and to register, visit

March in March is a virtual event – you don’t have to physically turn up to a race start line. How and where (within your local area) you complete the challenge is up to you so even with COVID-19 restrictions this is a fundraising event we can all take part in. Simply register online, decide when and where you’re going to walk and get started!

We’re encouraging participants to adhere to all government guidelines, and share photos and videos on social media of them undertaking the challenge, using #MarchinMarch.

All money raised will enable us to treat veterans across the UK with severe mental health issues.

Robert Marsh, Director of Fundraising at Combat Stress, said:

“It would be fantastic to see as many people as possible signing up to take part in March in March. It’s the perfect opportunity to show your support for the military community while looking after your own physical and mental wellbeing at a time where it is even more important than ever.  

“Combat Stress provides unique life-changing and often life-saving support to veterans in the UK with mental health problems. Today, we are 75% reliant on donations, so having the support of the public is vital to ensure we can continue providing treatment and support for years to come.”
