Hospice Heroes Walk
  • You choose when and where!
    You choose!
  • Wednesday 19th August, 12:00pm - Until Monday 30th November, 6:00pm
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
