The Mason Foundation was established in 2017 by our founder Stephen Mason.
Stephen, born with a disability himself, was only too aware of the many barriers that can exist for so many groups within society, which make participating in mainstream activities more difficult.
Stephen is hugely passionate about championing inclusivity and was driven to create opportunities for everyone to have a starting point for activity.
He wanted to provide an activity that individuals and families from all walks of life could come together to participate in, removing barriers, building friendships, and celebrating inclusivity.
This saw the birth of The Mason Mile – locally centred, Community-based miles, where everyone can come together to do #TheirMileTheirWay, regardless of ability or disability; helping people to become happier, healthier, and more active.
In the early days, The Mason Mile was a series of one off events held in the community, for the community, with the community at the heart. The Mason Mile was a movement that people could be part of; connecting, empowering and motivating communities to get involved.
In 2018 The Mason Mile saw the development of its Family Mile and Business Mile programmes, both focussed around driving happier, healthier more connected communities, with specific focuses on engagement of young families and a wide range of local businesses, within the areas we were delivering in.
We are for EVERYONE, of every age and every ability! We are the starting point towards a happier and healthier life, which is FREE and EASY, anywhere, anytime. Once you have started, and with our support, your easy activity naturally leads to a better diet and improvements in your mental health.
No special clothing or equipment is required, and it doesn’t matter how old you are, or if you are disabled, or even if you haven’t done any activity in a while! Our Mile movement allows you to enjoy doing #YourMileYourWay, connecting you with others from your local community.
Our local Ambassadors are there for YOU! – To help, encourage, support, and guide you on your journey. Their dedicated community spirit is at the heart of all they do. They will be able to connect you with other like-minded people from your local community, helping you to help yourself and if you would like to go on and help others in your local area, we can support you with that too.
We work in partnership with Governments, Health services, Charities and Global Corporations.
