Lincoln City Foundation are challenging the people of Lincolnshire to walk park to park in aid of Male Mental Health this May. In this inclusive challenge, you can set your own distance by walking from your local to a park of your choice, depending on your own capabilities.
‘A Walk in The Park’ is a fantastic challenge to get a little creative with. Build your own route and take it on during one epic day or spread it out throughout may. Walk your local parks or discover a new area. Take the kids and do it as a family and with a picnic or go at it alone. There is real scope to make this challenge your own.

Elizabeth Welch, Marketing & Communications Manager for Lincoln City Foundation said,
“We are so excited about launching our ‘A Walk in The Park’ Challenge. This challenge not only gives Lincolnshire Folk the chance to make a huge difference in their county, but its also an excellent excuse to get outdoors and active, when the weather brightens up.”
“For some, walking 30 minutes is a huge challenge, and others might be planning a full days trek. We want to celebrate each one of them, because what they are doing is amazing!
Lincolnshire has a male mental health crisis. Over 75% of Lincolnshire Suicides are Men and 63% of those had struggled with their mental health for a long time.
Funds raised go to fund the Team Talk project, setting up hubs across Lincolnshire to support men. Team talk pledges to tackle male mental health in Lincolnshire by providing dedicated wellbeing hubs, activities, advice and support for men ages 18+.
We aim to have hubs throughout Lincolnshire, giving men a safe space, and peer to peer support to talk about their problems, find advice and take part in activities designed to improve their well-being.
Will you go the extra mile to support male mental health across Lincolnshire?
