About the event:
This year the Leeds Midnight Walk celebrate its 10th anniversary! Join hundreds of St Gemma’s Hospice supporters and take on the 7 or 10 mile neon themed sponsored walk while raising money for your local Hospice. For the first time, St Gemma’s are inviting both men and women to take part in this event and they hope it will raise over £100,000 for the Hospice.
Setting off from Xercise 4 Less Gym in Kirkstall at 10pm, the route takes walkers past the beautiful Kirkstall Abbey, into Horsforth and onto West Park. There is a half way stop for all participants where drinks and snacks are available to keep your spirits high during the second half of the walk. As you return to the gym at the end of the walk, you’ll have your hard earned medal placed around your neck and each walker will receive a small goody bag.
This really is a fantastic event where the community spirit for St Gemma’s Hospice can really be felt. Since the event began in 2006 we have raised over £752,400 for St Gemma’s and to celebrate the events 10th anniversary we want to light up the streets neon, so all t-shirts will be brightly coloured! We would love to have 1,000 walkers in this anniversary year!
For the third consecutive year Simplyhealth are very kindly supporting the event. Thank you to them for their continued support of the Hospice.
Advance registration for the 2016 Leeds Midnight Walk has now closed.
You can sign up on the day to take part for £25 per person.
