Midnight Walk 2018
16 Jun, 2018 - 10:00pm
The Midnight Memories Walk is an 8-mile sponsored walk to raise money for Bolton Hospice. You can walk in memory of a loved one, to support the hospice or as a survivor of a life-limiting illness. Bolton Hospice needs to raise £3.4 million every year to continue to provide free expert care and support for local people with terminal and life-limiting illnesses and thanks to your fundraising, we can keep helping families at the most difficult time of their lives.
Join our army of Midnight Walkers and be part of something amazing in 2018!
What route do we take?
New Starting Point for 2018! The 8-mile route starts at Market Place this year and takes you past the hospice on Chorley New Road. We've got lots of fantastic entertainment planned for our new starting point so keep your eyes peeled for updates! There will be a pit-stop at Meadowhill Nursery for refreshments before taking on the second half of the loop. The route ends where you began at Market Place where you will celebrate with a well-deserved medal and time to reflect once more on what this night has meant to you, your family and friends.
How does it work?
The walk starts at 10pm and all walkers can choose a lantern that best represents why you are taking part, and this year we are excited to introduce brightly coloured t-shirts to mirror the lanterns to make this our most vibrant walk ever! Choose pink if you are walking in memory of a loved one, blue if you are a supporter of Bolton Hospice, or choose yellow if you are a survivor of a life threatening illness. During the walk you will light up the sky with your lantern and share a special minute’s silence. A time for us all to reflect – to celebrate all those that are with us and remember those who are not.
Everyone is welcome to take part in the walk - men, women and children! This is a sponsored walk to raise money for Bolton Hospice, you can download a sponsor form to get started today and you'll receive a fundraising pack in the post once you've signed up!
