Pain Into Power Walk
July 31, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
To celebrate the launch of our dedicated ‘Pain into Power’ phoneline support service earlier this year, Maggie and her team of Ambassadors have signed up to complete a sponsored walk on 31st July 2021.
This will be the first time that the team of nearly 40 volunteers will have been together in person, having spent the last year of lockdown working remotely, over the phone and on zoom calls… and after a fairly sedentary time clocking up these miles will be a challenge!
We are hoping to use the day to raise awareness of the Foundation, and also vital funds to help us support even more adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Our phonelines are a key part of this support, providing a caring, safe space for survivors to focus on their individual needs and to enable more positive steps for their future. We are also actively campaigning for positive changes to prevent institutional failings, or seek justice for those survivors who have been let down by the authorities.
As we prepare for the big day you could help us spread the word by sharing this page on your social media, using the hashtags #TheMaggieOliverFoundation and #PainIntoPower.
You could also set your own fundraising challenge and work together with your friends, family or work colleagues to do a sponsored walk or other event too! We would love to see what other ideas people come up with this year. Last year we had some fantastic fundraisers supporting the Foundation – take a look at Wheelie Bins Challenge or Three Miles for Three Girls for inspiration!
And if you would like to sponsor our team for the Pain into Power Walk 2021, please head to our special page on JustGiving: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/painintopowerwalk.
As ever we are so grateful for your support…
Maggie & the Ambassadors xxxx
