Official launch of Midnight Walk starts tomorrow
REGISTRATION for popular midnight walk will open tomorrow.
The Gemstone Midnight Walk in aid of Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity will officially open in Friars Square Shopping Centre in Aylesbury.
The annual event, now in its fifth year, is a night-time walking challenge of either a six or 13-mile route around Aylesbury.
To mark the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Florence Nightingale Hospice, the charity revealed there will be 25 places for men. Ladies are being encouraged to nominate their special man by explaining why your ‘man’ should get one of the places.
The official launch is a chance to register on the day as an individual or team and find out more about the walk which starts and finishes at Aylesbury College.
The walk is the biggest fundraiser in the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity’s fundraising calendar, raising over a quarter of a million pounds for the Hospice since the event started in 2010.
Registration for the event on July 12 costs £15 and includes access to a 10-week training plan, t-shirt, medal, refreshments both pre, during and post walk and a hot and cold breakfast on completion of the challenge.
If you can’t get down for the registration opening on Saturday, then you can register online at www.gemstonewalk.co.uk or call 01296 429975.
