Hospice Heroes Walk

Registration is now open!

Join us in our first ever Hospice Heroes Walk to celebrate the amazing work that our heroes do here at St. Michael’s Hospice, as well as your personal heroes who are special to you.

Did you know that our medical heroes at St. Michael’s Hospice walk on average 5 miles per shift? Why not walk in their footsteps for a day or week and take part in either our 5 mile or 25-mile challenge. 

Who is your hero? Maybe it’s a neighbour that always goes the extra mile, a family member who’s always there, a friend that helped you through a difficult time, a St. Michael’s Hospice hero who has touched your life or a loved one who is no longer with us.

You may wish to use the walk to revisit somewhere special to you and your hero, to walk in memory of a loved one or even have some fun and take part dressed up as your favourite superhero. Walk wherever and whenever you choose, all that we ask is that you follow the current UK Government guidelines and adhere to the social distancing measures in place.

We would also love to see your finish line photos and personalised walker messages on our social media using #hospiceheroeswalk

 

How does it work?

Step 1. Select your walking challenge (5 or 25 miles)

Step 2. Print and personalise your walker message (included in your event pack via email) and safety pin to your t-shirt

Step 3. Start walking (your challenge must be completed within 1 month of registering)

Step 4. Once complete, simply email your evidence to: events@stmichaelshospice.org.uk. This can be done via Garmin, Map My Walk, Fit Bit, screenshots of treadmill etc. We would also love to see your pictures!

Step 5. You will be sent your limited-edition medal in the post.

We kindly ask all participants to try and collect a small amount of sponsorship to help us continue to provide our care for patients facing life limiting illness in the community.

  • £5.60 is the cost of printing a special memory book for children who have lost someone at the Hospice.
  • £15 is the average cost of providing 3 meals, drinks and snacks to a patient per day
  • £20 is the cost of 1 nurse for 1 hour
