Walk for A Cure returns for 2020! This year we are looking for a team of walkers to take on the Jurassic Coast Challenge over the weekend of 16th/17th May 2020 to help raise funds for research and to support kidney cancer patients, carers and their families across the UK.
Join 2,000 adventurers of all experience levels & ages and Walk, Jog or Run the spectacular Jurassic Coast – a World Heritage Site. Starting at Poole Harbour – it’s on to Corfe Castle, across to Lulworth Cove, past Durdle Door, with ups and downs all the way to the Weymouth halfway point.
For 100km challengers – it’s past Portland Bill, nature reserves, along the western end of Chesil Beach to West Bay’s famous cliffs (of TV’s Broadchurch fame) – before a finish line celebration in vibrant Bridport. With Half & Quarter distance options also, with full support and great hospitality all the way – there’s a challenge here for everyone!
You can choose your distance to walk – 25km, 34km, 42km, 58km or 100km
Then choose which funding option you would like:-
Option 1 – Charity Sponsorship- pay a small registration fee, do lots of fundraising for us and we cover the cost of your place!
Option 2 – Mixed Funding – pay half of your event place cost yourself, fundraise a bit less and we pay the balance of your place!
Option 3- Self Funding – you pay the full cost of your place – fundraise whatever you want, with no set target or deadline and no cost to us.
In Scotland join us at one of this year’s Kiltwalk – for more information and to register, click here and let us know so that we can share fundraising materials with you, by emailing email@example.com
You could walk with a friend, start a walking group or if you are a rambling group, create a unique event.
Why this event is called ‘Walk for A Cure’
In October of 2010 kidney cancer patient and fundraiser Adrian ‘Ade’ Cure was a guest speaker at our President’s Dinner at the House of Lords. He was a proud, strong, determined
man and raised over £30,000 for kidney cancer, most of which was donated to us before he died of kidney cancer in March 2011 after a four-year fight.
In memory of Ade and all he had achieved, his brother-in-law Andy Coleman and Jane (Ade’s wife in the picture on the left) organised the ‘Walk for A. Cure’ fundraising event and were determined to smash the £10,000 fundraising target set. They raised over £18,000 to support the kidney cancer community.
You can walk as far as you wish, by yourself or as a group!
