Baby steps for the adult mind

Baby Steps for the Adult Mind – Thames Valley Walk 2021

Our next challenge is starting this weekend on Saturday 24th July and it’s a big one! Our #BabyStepsfortheAdultMind challenge will be a 8 day walk of the Thames valley, covering 185 miles.

In 2019, as part of my #Nine4Norah challenges, I also did a long walk of the Thames and it was great to be joined by others along the way, including some of my teammates from SANDS United (a football team made up of bereaved fathers and other men affected by baby loss). It was such a great way to open up the conversation about baby loss and mental health – I had some great conversations with other people facing similar mental health issues to me or who have also lost children.

If you’d like to join me for any part of the 8 day Thames walk this year, please let me know, I’d love to see you there. Anyone can join in, whether it’s for a few hours, a whole day or even a couple of days. Check out our itinerary below:
