Leicester Hospitals Charity Walk for Wards 2017
On Sunday 3rd September 2017 we will be holding our annual Walk for Wards event at Brocks Hill Country Park, Oadby. This event gives you the opportunity to raise money for the ward or department of your choice. On the day you can walk 3km (2 laps) around the park, or as many 3km laps as you can do in 1 hour 30 minutes. The walk is on a gravel path with some small inclines and may be muddy in places so please wear comfortable walking shoes.
Registration for this event is free all we ask is that every participant over the age of 16 raises the minimum of £20.00 but please try to raise as much you can for the ward you have chosen.
You might choose to walk for a specific ward in memory of a loved one, you may have received excellent care on one of our wards and would like to say thank you or you might simply like to support Leicester's hospitals. Whatever your reason for walking we would love to see you there and hear your story.
All money you raise at Walk for Wards 2017 will fund enhancements, equipment or research across Leicester's hospitals for the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and beyond. This could include helping to make an area more relaxing for patients, funding equipment that could make wards more efficient allowing nurses to spend more time with patients or funding activities for children or older patients to help them to feel more at ease when they are in hospital.
Please use the registration form below to sign up for the walk, we will then email you further information including the timings for the day, a map, and a sponsor form. You must register to take part in this event and registration closes at Midday on Friday 1st September.
