Details: If you are interested in raising money for one of the UK’s largest charities, Marie Curie Cancer Care, and enjoy summer evening walks then this is the perfect event for you.
Walk Ten is a series of 10k summer evening walks taking place at 25 different locations across the country. After each walk, there will be fun activities like fireworks, picnics and live music to celebrate the work of Marie Curie Nurses who provide free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.
Outdoor enthusiast and keen walker Julia Bradbury said: “I’ve had the privilege of taking part in Marie Curie’s Walk Ten and I’d strongly urge others to sign up. Walking in the British countryside is a great passion of mine and the chance to enjoy sunset walks at magnificent venues is truly not to be missed. As well as being a fun event to do with friends and family, it’s great to know that by taking part you’re helping to raise crucial funds to allow Marie Curie Nurses to continue to provide care at home to terminally ill patients day in, day out. The walks end with a celebration of the work of Marie Curie Nurses, making it an even more memorable and special occasion.”
The walks will take place between July and September, registration is £10 per person (children go free) and everyone is encouraged to raise as much as possible to support Marie Curie Cancer Care. All the funds raised will allow Marie Curie Nurses to provide more hours of care, totally free, for terminally ill people in their own homes and in the charity’s hospices.
HomeServe is proud to partner Marie Curie Cancer Care and yet again sponsor Walk Ten for a fantastic third year.
HomeServe has pledged to donate £1 million; giving £500,000 in cash which will pay for 25,000 hours of Marie Curie nursing care and £500,000 of free home emergency cover to Marie Curie patients by March 2013. Homeserve are already well over half way to fulfilling their promise to the charity, having donated £650,000.
