It’s not too late to sign up for St Christopher’s Fun Walk 2013.
There is less than a week to go before St Christopher’s Fun Walk which will take place on Sunday 19 May. Registration is free http://www.stchristophers.org.uk/funwalk for this biannual event in and around Keston Common in nearby Kent. Walks of 3, 5, 8 and 11 miles enable people of all ages and fitness to take part. St Christopher’s Fun Walk is a great day out for all the family – as well as lots of fun and laughter along the routes, there are refreshments and live music and entertainment all day on Keston Common.
In our last Fun Walk in 2011 walkers raised a phenomenal £220,000 towards the running of the hospice. This year we hope to raise £250,000 to help us continue supporting dying people and those close to them in Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.
*Registration is free if you sign up before Tuesday 14 May, after this it is £5 per person on the day. There is no minimum sponsorship requirement, we just ask walkers to raise as much as they are able to, and those pledging to raise over £50 will receive an exclusive Fun Walk t-shirt!
Since it began 12 years ago, Fun Walk has raised £1.7 million for St Christopher’s, that’s the equivalent cost of all the nursing care for one bed on our inpatient unit every day for the past 15 years!
Rebecca Kemp, Community Fundraiser at St Christopher’s says: “We are so thankful to the 2,000 people who have signed up to walk so far – it would be fantastic for even more members of our local community to join us and I am sure it is going to be a special day. Please join us on Sunday 19 May and support your local hospice.”
