The Sunrise Walk is a unique and unmissable event organised by our fundraising team. Many of our families (and their furry friends) have enjoyed participating in previous years. Read on to find out all about the walk and complimentary places for families.
The very special splendour of Surrey countryside at sunrise awaits you with our Guildford Sunrise Walk.
Our rural and undulating Guildford route follows parts of the North Downs Way, the River Wey, and St Martha’s on the Hill, rewarding walkers after a steep ascent with unmissable views experienced in the magnificence of the morning light.
With 10km and 20km routes available everyone from family, friends, and your furry friends, can enjoy these stunning surroundings encapsulated in a unique experience.
It’s not just the early hour that sets our Sunrise Walks apart from other challenges, they offer the perfect opportunity to reflect, celebrate and remember loved ones. At the start of our walks, we have a memory tree where walkers can hang special lanterns which can be personally decorated and are available on request when you register.
What’s more, once you complete the walk you can relax with a hot breakfast, a Sunrise Walk medal, and the knowledge you’ve taken part in our hospice’s flagship event. As a supported family there’s no requirement to fundraise. If you would prefer to just come walk with us and light a lantern in memory of your child, you are more than welcome to do so. Many of our supported families come back year after year.
The event is open to all ages. Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times. Responsibility as to whether those under 7 (our previous lower age limit) can complete the walk within a reasonable time, lies solely with the parent/guardian.
We are delighted to be able to offer our families five free places per supported family. To get your code, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send through the registration link.
