Walk of Life
Saturday 11 May 2019
Kennet And Avon Canal - Bishops Cannings To Bath
Registration is now open for this popular walking marathon and 10 mile trail, along the beautiful Kennet & Avon canal. The sponsored walk is organised by the charity for the RUH, The Forever Friends Appeal, so every step you take will support patients and their families, at a time when they need it the most.
Legendary Glastonbury Festival founder, Michael Eavis CBE will be back again to open the start of the walkís epic 26.2 mile (approx.) route in Bishops Cannings, near Devizes. From there the walk heads along the towpath, through Bradford on Avon, before finishing at the iconic Holburne Museum in Bath. The 10 mile afternoon route joins in the fun in Bradford on Avon.
The walk was originally created with and in memory of a wonderful lady, Vanessa Kyte, who passed away from cancer in 2007. Since then, thousands of people have taken part to celebrate the life and memories of their own loved ones, to show support for someone receiving treatment or simply to take on the challenge. As a local hospital serving Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire the RUH touches the lives of over half a million people, whether as a patient ourselves or visiting a loved one. Itís where our babies are born, where our broken limbs are repaired, where we fight diseases, face the challenges of old age, learn to manage long-term conditions and so much more. The vital funds raised from the walk will help pay for extra special projects and state-of-the-art equipment (beyond the remit of the NHS) that will transform care for the hundreds of thousands of patients and families cared for each and every year.
Open to both men and women. Early bird entry costs £20 until 3rd December and £25 thereafter (includes a t-shirt, medal, water and treats along the way & lots of support) and you can choose to walk in support of any ward, department or campaign at the RUH thatís close to your heart. The event is proudly sponsored by Kier Construction and M J Church.
