From April 13 to April 18 2022 a team of men from ManHealth will be walking over 130 miles in 5 Days to raise awareness of men’s mental health in the North East. The men who all struggle with mental health conditions have benefitted from using the peer support groups and other services of ManHealth and are looking to raise awareness of the crisis in men’s mental health and raise funds for ManHealth to continue and extend their work.
They are planning to visit over 17 Football Club Grounds as part of their route and we are pleased to confirm that the march will arrive at Shildon AFC’s Dean Street ground on the evening of 16th April and depart again on the morning of 17th April. The ground will be open for their arrival and departure and anybody can come along and welcome them to the ground or wave them off – an invitation is open to take part in the march.
As ManHealth planned the walk they heard the terrible news that one of their group had lost his son and the walk is now being done in loving memory of Harvey McWilliams. Harvey was young lad from Darlington and was football mad.
