About the Walk
So what is all the fuss about? Well, our Walk to Remember is a 10 mile twilight challenge through the streets of Ulverston to Barrow. With the finish kindly hosted by Furness Academy Barrow, you will breathe in the beautiful surroundings of the countryside from start to finish. But of course, best of all are the people! You’ll be joined by people from right across Cumbria and by those who have travelled from as far as London and even America to take part!
Regardless of if you consider yourself a seasoned Walker or are taking part for the very first time, the Walk to Remember is an unmissable, inspiring and a truly unforgettable experience. Each amazing individual walks for their own reasons so whether you are remembering a loved one or walking simply because you believe in St Mary’s, every step will make a difference.
For over 12 years the Walk to Remember has been running as a flagship event in our exciting fundraising calendar and year on year you have managed to raise incredible amounts so we can continue to be here for our community. In 2017 an outstanding £56,486 was raised! (Watch this space for this year’s figures!):
Mel Dixon, St Mary’s Events and Challenges Fundraiser: “We are absolutely blown away by the sheer dedication and love our community show and have for St Mary’s Hospice. The Walk To Remember evening creates such a buzz. Everyone has different reasons for coming together and we aim to create an environment where people feel able to reflect and remember their someone or something special. Because everyone who takes part goes the extra ten miles on that night! This means even more families can benefit from our care, comfort and support. Thank you.”
