'50 In 50 Challenge' To Take Place This Week In Aid Of Former Bantams Midfielder

16 May 2018

A group of fundraisers are to take part in a charity challenge this week called '50 in 50' in aid of two mental health charities, one of which has been set up in memory of former Bantams midfielder Chris Mitchell.

The '50 in 50' challenge will see the group visit 50 professional and semi-professional football clubs in Scotland over a period of just 50 hours between this Thursday and Saturday (17-19 May).

The marathon journey will culminate at Hampden Park on the afternoon of the Scottish Cup Final this Saturday (19 May).

The charity fundraisers are taking on the challenge during mental health awareness week for SAMH - Scotland's oldest mental health charity - and the Chris Mitchell Foundation.

The foundation was created on behalf of the 27 year-old, who sadly took his own life back in 2016 after suffering from depression and anxiety.

Their vision is to dispel the stigma associated with mental health in Scottish football and for it to be integrated into health and fitness programmes.

They aim to bring to the forefront the need for awareness of mental health and wellbeing within the football industry, and to raise awareness on a national scale.

Former Scottish Under 21 international Mitchell featured for City during the 2011/2012 campaign.
