Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is inviting you to walk in memory of someone special on the weekend of 22 and 23 May. The thirteenth annual Star Shine Walk, sponsored by The Cambridgeshire Care Home, will raise much needed funds for hospice care across Cambridgeshire.
This will be the second outing for Star Shine Walk as a ‘virtual’ event! Participants get to choose the time, location and method to suit them. They are challenged with completing a 5, 10 or 20 mile distance over the event weekend, and can chose to walk, skip, wheel, trundle, scoot, walk the dog or even dance their way around: whatever suits them most!
The walk raises funds for the Hospice’s essential frontline care, whilst providing the perfect motivation to get active. Incredibly in 2020 the memory walk raised more than £40,000 – the equivalent of 67 visits by the Charity’s Hospice at Home team.
Teams of colleagues, friends and families can get involved, no matter how far apart they’re based. Angeline Liles, Events Officer at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, adds:
“We have found that people taking part in Star Shine Walk treasure the event as a unique opportunity to actively remember, honour and celebrate the life of someone they love. The beauty of it being a virtual event again this year means anyone can take part wherever in the county, country or world they live. Teams can even set off at the same time if they like! You can also plan your route to take in places of particular significance, or landmarks that are related to special memories.”
Register (£17 for over 16s and £15 for children) at arhc.org.uk/starshinewalk by 16 May to receive a Walk Pack, including a special edition event t-shirt and other goodies.
