The aforementioned individual and his brother, Anthony Lewis, joined forces with a large group of over 100 individuals to partake in a 92-mile charitable walk. The purpose of this arduous journey was to raise both funds and awareness for Andy's Man Club, an organization focused on preventing male suicides. Established in 2016, this organization offers free support groups, both in person and online, in the United Kingdom, providing a safe space for men to discuss their experiences openly and end the stigma surrounding men's mental health. Lewis took the opportunity to reflect on this topic during an interview on BBC Breakfast.

He expressed the significance of acknowledging that everyone faces their own struggles. In the past few days, this notion has been the subject of many conversations, highlighting the importance of individuals sharing their experiences and burdens. By doing so, everyone realizes that they are not alone in their journey. It's a collective realization that extends beyond oneself. Opening up about one's struggles can be incredibly difficult, leading to feelings of profound loneliness and isolation. However, it's crucial to remember and recognize that there are people out there who are willing to provide support and understanding.

In loving memory of Gary Speed, a cherished professional football player who tragically ended his own life in 2011, this particular charitable walk is dedicated. Speed was highly regarded for his remarkable career, showcasing his exceptional skills as a midfielder for renowned football clubs including Leeds United, Everton, Newcastle United, and Bolton Wanderers. Additionally, he proudly represented the Wales National Team and served as its manager during his final year. The charity walk commemorates significant milestones of Speed's life, commencing at Goodison Park where he nurtured his talent as a youth while playing for Everton, and culminating at Elland Road, where he contributed his magnificent midfield prowess to Leeds United.
