Carry that weight 2021

26.3 miles, 39lbs carried by each participant in recognition of the 39* lives lost to suicide in Liverpool in 2020. *reference

What's it all about?

Since 2003, World Suicide Prevention Day has been recognised annually on 10th September.

To commemorate the occasion, we at Lightbody Health CIC have decided to set ourselves a challenge.

In 2020, 39* people in Liverpool lost their lives to suicide.

Our group will be walking 26.3 miles (full marathon distance) along the coastal roads from Southport Promenade to Otterspool Promenade carrying up to 39lbs in weight each. This walk will take place on 11th September.

Each lb symbolises a life lost and the heavy burden carried by people struggling with mental health.

All monies raised will go towards the development of our very own intervention therapy ‘Walk and Talk’ groups.

The aim is to raise £3000!
