Will you join Saint Mary's Hospital Charity for this year’s virtual Forever in Our Hearts walk?
2020 has been a year that none of us will forget. Whilst we can’t come together to collectively remember our loved ones at Heaton Park this year, we hope that you will show your support by undertaking your own walk in tribute to those who hold a special place in your heart.
We've extended this event so that you can take part throughout December, choosing your own date and your own distance – we recommend 5km to match the distance normally walked in this event, but you can also choose to undertake a longer route should you wish to. You may also wish to consider choosing a route of special significance to you, for example a favourite location of your loved one.*
Registration is £10 per walker and includes a free charity t-shirt which we hope you will wear to walk in. Under 16s are free to register. If you raise more than £40 we will also send you a candle and a special packet of seeds to plant in memory of your loved one.
The funds you raise will go directly to the hospital you’re supporting, helping us to fund life-changing projects – things like cutting-edge clinical research, the creation of a more welcoming, family-friendly environment, or the provision of state-of-the-art equipment. What’s more, if you wish, you can choose to support an individual ward or department – please just let us know when you register and we can ensure that the funds you raise go towards the ward, department, or project that you hold dearest.
Registration for this event will close at 11pm on Sunday 20th December. We guarantee to have sent all participant packs out on or before Monday 21st December. Packs mailed on Monday 21st December will be sent first class in line with Royal Mail's latest recommended posting dates.
*Please ensure that your walk adheres to current Covid-restrictions in your area.
