Make 2020 the year you do something amazing! Go the extra mile and join St Catherine’s Hospice for its popular Midnight Walk on Saturday 6 June 2020.
Last year, around 1,000 people walked through Horsham to help St Catherine’s get a step closer to supporting more local terminally ill people and their families, at a time it’s needed most. This year, St Catherine’s needs you to step out under the stars, with your family, friends or colleagues, to make a difference to others in your community.
The walk starts at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre, and if you can, why not go the extra mile and sign up to walk 20 miles for 2020? Or sign up for the 13 mile, 7 mile, or 2 mile family friendly route.
Alongside supporting their local hospice, many people walk in memory of someone they love. Perhaps you have someone special you can walk in honour of? Maureen, whose daughter-in-law, Nicola, was cared for by St Catherine’s, has taken part in several Midnight Walks in Nicola’s memory. She said: “I always have so much fun on the walk and whenever I cross the finish line I feel proud. Everyone cheers and congratulates you and it’s always a very poignant moment for me. I’d encourage others to take part in the Midnight Walk, because raising money for our wonderful, local hospice is very important.”
Rose Wood, Events Fundraiser at St Catherine’s, said: “Every year, it’s humbling to see so many people join us at our Midnight Walk. It’s an inspiring night where people remember their loved ones, and challenge themselves to walk as many miles as possible, to raise as much money as possible. Every person has their own reason for walking but they’re united in wanting to make sure that hospice care is there for other people when it’s needed most.
“At the moment, St Catherine’s can only reach one in three people who need hospice care. By supporting our Midnight Walk, you’ll be making sure that in the future our hospice can help more people. Nobody should face death and loss alone, so we hope you’ll step out in 2020 for this very special evening.”
