Event description
Challenge yourself to walk 6 or 10 miles in October. You choose the date, time and location!

About this Event

This year, our biggest fundraising event of the year - the Midnight Memory Walk - has unfortunately had to be cancelled.

We know how important the event is to so many people and we still want to bring our community together this October, so that's why we're turning the Memory Walk virtual!

All you have to do is walk 6 or 10 miles, on any one day in October. You choose the route, the date and the time!

When you sign up, you’ll receive a t-shirt and walker pack and you’ll even get a medal once your walk is complete! Even your four-legged friends will receive a medal if you register your dog to take part too!

There’s no minimum fundraising target, all we ask is that you raise as much as you can by sharing your challenge and progress with your friends and family! Your registration fee covers the cost of you taking part, so every donation, no matter how big or small, really does make a difference.

No matter where, or when you complete the walk, and whether you take part in memory of someone special, or just to challenge yourself - you will be part of something amazing as our community laces up and comes together for Kirkwood this October.

So how does it work?

  • Simply sign up through this Eventbrite page or by using one of our paper forms.
  • When we receive your registration, we’ll send you a walker pack which contains key information and your iconic Memory Walk t-shirt! *please note it can take up to 7 working days to receive your pack so allow plenty of time to sign up before you want to complete the challenge! The price for registration includes postage, so this will come straight to your door!
  • Once you sign up, you’ll also be prompted to set up a JustGiving fundraising page- get this set up as soon as possible so your family and friends can support you and you can share your progress with them!
  • Decide when and where you'd like to walk either 6 or 10 miles - all we ask is that you complete the whole distance in one day, in October! Plus make sure you choose a route that's safe!
  • When you complete your challenge, make sure to record it (you could use a fitness app such as Strava, a mobile phone, smartwatch or pedometer) then just send us the evidence that you’ve walked 6 or 10 miles, in one go. This could be by uploading a screenshot to your JustGiving page or sending it to us via email (if you have Strava, make sure to link your account to your JustGiving page and your activity should be uploaded automatically)
  • Once your fundraising page has closed (or you send in your sponsor money) and we receive the evidence that you have completed your 6 or 10 miles challenge, we will send you your well-deserved finisher's pack which will contain your collectible Memory Walk medal!

If you have any questions or would like to know more about this event or our Midnight Memory Walk on 10th October, please contact the Kirkwood Fundraising Team on: events@kirkwoodhospice.co.uk or 01484 557911
