Miss Yorkshire Tackles Yorkshire Three Peaks to Champion Mental Wellbeing

Miss Yorkshire is lacing up her boots and preparing to conquer one of the Dales’ toughest challenges – the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

On April 22nd, Chloe McEwen, from Harrogate, will be joining the iconic trek in aid of Mind in Harrogate District, her local mental health charity. This gruelling challenge involves scaling Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough, covering a distance of 24 miles (38.6 km) with an elevation gain of over 5,200 feet (1,585 meters).

Chloe is passionate about promoting the positive impact that exercise and spending time outdoors can have on mental health. “Being Miss Yorkshire is a fantastic platform to raise awareness for important issues,” she says. “Mind in Harrogate District does incredible work supporting people with mental health struggles, and I’m excited to take on this challenge to contribute to their cause and support them in sharing their message.”

In preparation for the challenge, Chloe has been getting her steps in and has been out walking in the local area. Chloe, who has bipolar disorder, is keen to share her journey to shed light on this important cause. Her passion for participating in this project stems from her personal belief in the positive effects of exercise and being outdoors on mental health. Having overcome her own challenges, Chloe is enthusiastic about using her story to highlight the importance of staying active for mental wellbeing.
Tina Chamberlain says “The funds raised by Miss Yorkshire will directly support our vital services, which include one-to-one support and group activities for those experiencing mental health difficulties.
