Please join us in March for the first 10K Walk For Pain Support Jersey. It’s easy to take for granted the simple act of walking short distances without experiencing pain, but there are many people out there for whom this is just not an option. For people with persistent pain a walk can be a tough challenge or even an impossible dream, due to the pain, decreased mobility and a lack of self-confidence. Our walk aims to highlight the daily challenges faced by pain sufferers while raising funds for a charity which helps them to live more fulfilled lives, through gentle exercise and mindfulness sessions together with social events. So, are you ready for a new challenge in 2019? Are you a self-confessed couch potato who wants to move more? Or an ultra runner who wants to learn to slow down? Perhaps you are a family longing to spend more time together outdoors in our beautiful island? The 10K Walk For Pain Support is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself while raising awareness and funds for a local charity. The walk will take place along the seafront from West Park to St Aubin and back on 10th March, and children and dogs are welcome. We are hoping that each participant will raise a minimum of £100. This can be done through the following link: https://www.wonderful.org/charity/painsupportjersey simply scroll and select 'create fundraising page' Do you need more of a challenge? Why not bring a backpack containing tins to add weight? After the walk, we’ll donate the tins to a local shelter in need. Sunday 10th March 2019. La Fregate to The Boat House and back. Meet 10.00 to 10.30 am for registration. The walk commences at 10.30. We will be keeping our walk as eco-friendly as possible and we’re delighted to say that Jersey Water will be donating water to our walkers on the day! Please bring your own water bottle to fill up at the start of the walk as we consciously reduce our single-use plastic waste.
