Sunrise Walk – Richmond
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.
After a two-year hiatus we’re thrilled that our renowned Richmond Sunrise Walk is back – we are ready to welcome you so you can enjoy the stunning sights South-West London has to offer as the sunrises.
Our picturesque Richmond route – ideal for families with young children due to the mostly flat terrain – takes participants past famous sights including the River Thames, Hampton Court and the beautiful and wildlife packed Bushy and Richmond Parks.
With 10km and 20km routes available everyone from family, friends, and the dog of course, can experience the stunning surroundings bathed in glorious dawn sunshine.
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 email@example.com and we will send through the registration link.
