We are fundraising for CALM with Thors Army 💪🏽💚⚒

Myself, my Wife (Ceila), My son (Dan) and our friends and family do as much as We can to raise money and awareness for men’s health, mental health and suicide awareness/ prevention having lost both our son and niece to Suicide. 

Our own men’s health group is called “Thors Army” after our families love of Viking mythology and marvel comics.... our son Cals nickname being Thor 💪🏽💚⚒

Calum (Thor) McGurk was our son, brother, cousin and friend....We we’re close and he was one of my best friends and not our my son. 

He was a beautiful, strong, hardworking, good looking mans man.... he had everything going for him and He could have done anything in life it seemed. 

After a bad relationship, money worries and life in general.... pride I feel took over as it does for so many of us... and due to the way we have been set up as men over the time and struggling to talk and let our emotions out.

And so While working away from home and in his hotel room Alone he took his own life... he was only 27


We’ve lost so many young men and woman in our home town of JARROW (South Tyneside) in recent years and After an awful start to 2020 for the world I have seen the effects on everyone’s mental health including my own. Hopefully you can All join us in this October to help make a change.  


We are going to do our Night Trek local this year due to COVID 19 issues so we will do around 26MILES:


From south Shields Lighthouse beacon (As it is a symbol of hope and helping people) through to our home town of Jarrow Where we will walk through the pedestrian tunnel which goes under the river Tyne.

Then we will head on to St James Park (home of Newcastle United). From there make our way across the Tyne bridge and all of the well known Land marks and Down the great north run route.

Then we will finish back at the beach at South Shields for sunrise. So when the last beacon lights finish and the sun begins to rise WE WILL STRIP OFF TO BRAVE THE FREEZING NORTH SEA WATERS FOR A PLUNGE TO FINISH OUR ADVENTURE  .... 🤪🥶💪🏽


It will start during the night of Saturday the 24th and finish Sunday morning the 25th (October).
