We're inviting walkers to get up and glow on Friday 9 September as part of our 30th
Registration is now open for Lindsey Lodge Hospice & Healthcare’s iconic 30th Anniversary Glow Walk #CheersFor30Years, which has raised over £570k in funds for the Burringham Road based charity over the years.
Lindsey Lodge Fundraising Manager Kirsty Walker said: “Our Glow Walk is one of the best loved mass participation events in our calendar, with over 450 people taking part last year, and as it’s our birthday year, we’re aiming for it to be even bigger and better than ever!”
She added: “As well as our 10 mile route, we’ve introduced a shorter five mile route, to encourage as many people as possible to get involved and experience the very special atmosphere that the Glow Walk evening brings.”
The Glow Walk is part of a number of fundraising events to support Lindsey Lodge’s ‘Cheers for 30 years!’ campaign, which has an ambitious £300k target, and aims to encourage local people to get involved with the birthday celebrations and help raise the much needed funds required to run its services. As well as pre-event live music and a fun warm up, glow walkers are encouraged to literally light up the night with their outfits and accessories.
Kirsty said “Whether it’s to walk in memory of a friend or loved one, a way of keeping fit, or simply to do something different with your friends on a Friday night – whatever the reason, you’ll be raising much-needed funds for Lindsey Lodge and helping us to ensure we’re here for another 30 years!”
Entry for the Glow Walk costs £15, and includes a free T-shirt, as well as a well-earned piece of cake and finisher’s medal for everyone who completes the walk. Participants will also receive a fundraising pack to support them with their training and preparation, as well as ideas for gaining sponsorship.
