There are a limited number of places left for people to sign up for Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices virtual Midsummer Walk this June.
Throughout June and midsummer supporters are being challenged to complete 75 miles to raise vital funds to help seriously ill local children and their families.
Fundraiser Nicola Eyes said: “There has been loads of excitement for this event from people who want to get out walking in the summer sunshine, while also raising money to support children and families in their local area.
“We’ve been blown away by the response to our virtual events during the pandemic. However, these are uncertain times and we still need your support to make sure we are there for those that need us the most.
“So sign up for the final places to the Midsummer Walk and help make this event one of the greats of the last year.”
The route will take walkers a virtual scenic route from Conwy to Oswestry, the homes of Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith.
By using a live leader board those who sign up will be able to track their progress as they put the miles in, passing milestones and seeing where other participants are up to.
Supporters will be able to link their Strava account or manually input their miles. They will also receive a bespoke medal once the challenge is complete.
The event sponsors Recycling UK Limited has been involved with the charity for quite a few years and Neil Clarke, Managing Director said: “Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices is our chosen company charity and we are so pleased to be able to sponsor the forthcoming Midsummer Walk and would encourage everyone to walk your way out of lockdown during June.”
This is a free-to-enter event with a commitment to raise a minimum of £21 for a medal and goodie bag containing some lovely surprises one of which is a drawstring bag, which has kindly been donated by My Workwear. Those supporters that raise over £50 will be entered into a prize draw.
