Darkness Into The Light Walk

May 21, 2022 @ 3:00 am 9:30 am

On the morning of the 21st of May Joe’s Giants will be holding a “night into the morning” walk to help end the stigma around mental health.

The Darkness into The Light walk is to represent that we can all enter a dark space, but there is always light at the “end of the tunnel”.

We want to use this time to remember those we have lost this year and share Joe’s anniversary with all attendees of the morning. With Joe’s anniversary being the 20th of May, this is the perfect date for us to bring everyone together, for Joe, for those we’ve lost, and for those who need the light.

The walk will start at 3am meeting at King’s Gardens, Southport, and we will take a 10 mile charity walk around the marine lake and surrounding areas. We will walk in guided groups, regathering to listen to speeches & soft music, for a moment of reflection. There will be mental health first aiders in attendance. If you feel unable to complete the full 10 miles then that’s completely understandable, we will have various entry and exit points throughout the walk with certificates awarded at the end of the charity event.

We are looking for a whole community response, our last walk saw us guide 65 people, and this time, we aim for more. We encourage any individual, organisation, or support that can be present and provided on the day of the event, to provide hope, happiness, strength, and solidarity throughout, to come forward, and join us.

We encourage fundraising for the event, or any donation made towards the event, and the cause, which will be most grateful. Fundraising for other charities or organisations is at the participants discretion, but we do ask that if you choose to raise funds for another charity, a small contribution of £20 is donated to Joe’s Giants. 

Any donation made £20 or above, will be accompanied by a Darkness Into The Light, Joe’s Anniversary Southport 2022 custom T-shirt. These will be printed in advance and received on the day of the event. Please specify and get in touch with sizes prior to the event via our contact us page after making the required donation amount.

Alternatively, you can book onto this event completely free of charge using the ticket below.
