Event description
Join with family and friends and walk 5K or 10K in memory of your loved one at Walk to Remember in Peterborough on Sunday 24 October.

About this event

The Walk to Remember routes will take you around the beautiful Ferry Meadows Country Park. During your walk, there will be an opportunity to place a dedication in memory of your loved one.

Crossing the finishing line, you’ll be rewarded with a well-deserved medal and the knowledge that you’ve done something special to remember those close to you and to support local people at the most difficult time of their lives.

What happens on the day?

You’ll be able to join us from 9:30am on Sunday 24th October at Ferry Meadows to register for the event. Whilst we welcome all our walkers, you can enjoy live entertainment followed by an exciting warm-up from a local fitness instructor.

At 11am, everyone will begin their Walk to Remember, whether enjoying the 5k or the more challenging 10k route. Our volunteer marshals and entertainment will cheer you on along the way!

Throughout the event, you’ll get to hear about the real difference you make to Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice from staff members, volunteers and personal stories from those that are Walking to Remember.

Your entry fee includes a Walk to Remember t-shirt, celebration medal, support with your fundraising and a special day out too - all in support of Sue Ryder's local palliative and bereavement care.

Why we ask you to fundraise

Every penny raised through sponsorship will help us to continue to be there for local families when it matters - providing expert and compassionate care and bereavement support in our hospice and out in the Peterborough community.

Can you help support the event, volunteer on the day or recruit walkers to join us? We would love to hear from you so please get in touch at thorpe.fundraising@sueryder.org

On both routes, there will be an opportunity for you to remember your loved one with a special area for dedications and reflection. We will also have on-route entertainment for you to enjoy as you Walk to Remember.

We are also the only unit with a multi-disciplinary team which includes doctors, nurses, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, bereavement counsellors, and psychological and spiritual support

Our 20-bed hospice is surrounded by beautiful, tranquil countryside which complements the specialist care and support we give to those with life-limiting conditions and their families.

In addition to our inpatient unit, our day service helps people living with long term conditions to avoid unnecessary trips to hospital, as well as offering social opportunities alongside others experiencing similar circumstances. We also offer a Hospice at Home service for people in the local community who prefer to receive palliative care at home.

Our expert team includes doctors, nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists, social workers and bereavement support workers. They all work seamlessly together to support people through the most difficult times of their lives.

Whether somebody is dealing with a terminal illness or the loss of a loved one, we’re there when it matters. Sue Ryder staff and volunteers provide people with the compassion and expert care they need, to help them live the best life they can.

We are part of the wider Sue Ryder charity.
