The Moonlight Walk is back for 2018, and this year St Barnabas Hospice has chosen two brand new locations to host it – one in Lincoln and one in Stamford.
Now in its eleventh year, the Moonlight Walk will be open to all residents of Lincolnshire with updated locations. On Saturday 9th June, the Moonlight Walk will take place at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, and on Saturday 15th September, there will be a second Moonlight Walk at Borderville Sports Centre, Stamford.
Amelia Mochan, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas, said: “We are delighted to be adding a second Moonlight Walk in Stamford this year. There are so many amazing St Barnabas supporters across Lincolnshire, and we want to include everyone.
“Although the Moonlight Walk used to be ‘ladies only’, this year St Barnabas is encouraging the public to grab the girls AND bring the blokes to what promises to be the biggest and best Moonlight Walk to date!”
The Moonlight Walk is a flagship event for St Barnabas, and features at 10k route around Lincoln or Stamford, beginning at the designated venues. This year, St Barnabas is aiming to get 2,000 people walking shoulder to shoulder for hospice care, with the support of BG Conference & Events.
Registration will open at 8pm for both events, and people will be able to take part in an entertaining warm-up led by Curves of Lincoln and Stamford Fitness. Participants will receive a free event t-shirt and finishers’ medal on the night. Each participant will get a bacon, sausage or veggie bap and hot drink once the walks have finished.
Laura Stones, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas, said: “Whether you want to be social, get fit or remember a loved one, join St Barnabas and hundreds of inspirational people from across Lincolnshire for a night you won’t forget.
“The money raised from these events will be crucial in helping St Barnabas provide care and support to people in Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, and their families and carers.”
