The brightest event of the year returns! Now in its seventh year, the Sunrise Walk is your moment to shine. This June gather your friends and family together to help raise money to support babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.
What’s more, in 2019 we’re bringing you a brand new route in Guildford. Our established Richmond route will be taking place on 2nd June, with our brand new Guildford route on 30th June.
A challenge with a difference, the Sunrise Walk starts at 4.30am and gives walkers a chance to see the beautiful sights and picturesque surroundings as the sun rises – a perfect way to start a Sunday morning in June.
The Richmond route takes participants through beautiful Richmond Park – ideal for families with young children, and depending on the route you choose, you’ll walk past some other stunning sights including Richmond Hill, The Thames, Ham Common, Bushy Park and Hampton Court Palace.
The new Guildford route starts and finishes at the University of Guildford, and takes walkers through parts of the North Downs Way, including Loseley Park and St Martha’s on the Hill.
Both Richmond and Guildford routes have the options of a 10km or 20km route, giving everyone from family, friends (and even dogs!) a chance to enjoy the sights at their leisure. The fun doesn’t end when the walk does, with a celebration breakfast picnic to recharge and refuel, a medal to mark the occasion and an opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere with fellow walkers.
The Sunrise Walk has proved a firm favourite with our supporters, with last year’s being a record breaker with the most walkers and money raised – a phenomenal £90,000! With only 10% of our income from government funding we rely on our supporters generosity to raise the difference to keep our service running – so with our participants dedication and commitment we hope this year’s Sunrise Walk is the best yet!
So whether you walk our Richmond route, try our new Guildford route or even do both – why not challenge yourself, have some fun and raise money to help every moment count – sign up today!
