At long last East Cheshire Hospice can finally look ahead to its next mass participation event!
A Memory Miles walk is scheduled for Friday, August 27, at Adlington Hall, some 16 months after it should have been held there.
Walkers enjoying the memory walk two years ago.
The event will bring to a close a Virtual Memory Miles campaign between May 1 and August 31.
That same initiative during the first lockdown last year raised over £10,000. Except this time the climax will feature a walk bringing everyone together.
Before then supporters are invited to undertake their own challenge, either walking, running, cycling, skating, swimming or any other way of getting around.
It is also a chance to honour lost loved ones, though anyone can take part.
The same applies to the Memory Miles walk – formerly Light Up The Night – which is one-kilometre woodland route at picturesque Adlington Hall.
Walkers can complete the course as often as they wish, with entertainment, stalls and refreshments, from 4 pm, adhering to any government guidelines.
Registration details for the walk will be announced soon on the website, along with the free-to-enter Virtual Memory Miles.
Events Manager Beth Candy said: “It’s great to be back with an actual event at which we can all get together again after such a long time.
“Our supporters have been loyal and patient over the last year or so and Memory Miles is a celebration of lost loved ones and the frustrating time we’ve spent apart from family and friends.”
The last memory walk in 2019.
