The new campaign explores the connection between body and mind and draws an unexpected and compelling parallel between the rejuvenating feeling of open water swimming and the soul warming first slurp of a steaming bowl of ramen.
Rachel Ashe, Managing Director of Mental Health Swims, shared her thoughts on the collaboration:
"We are delighted to partner with wagamama for these events. At Mental Health Swims, we believe that open water swimming can be a transformative experience for individuals' mental health.
"This partnership allows us to expand our reach and provide even more people with the opportunity to connect with their local communities and experience the therapeutic benefits of open water swimming."
Hoping to capture the essence of the unique experience wagamama offers its guests, the partnership will see the launch of a series of events designed to provide a free, safe, and inclusive space for communities to come together and connect with each other.
Focusing on "dips, not distance", these events aim to encourage individuals of all abilities to dip into open water swimming and promote the benefits .
Guests at the event can look forward to sampling wagamama's new menu showcasing a selection of new bowls designed to warm the soul.
Kay Bartlett, Chief Marketing Officer at wagamama, expressed her excitement about the partnership:
"At wagamama, we believe in the power of bringing people together over shared experiences.
"Promoting well-being and mindfulness is important to us and that"s why we're proud to partner with Mental Health Swims to create a welcoming space where people can connect with their communities (and) embrace the thrill of open water swimming."
