Glow with the flow at the St Clare Hospice Midnight Walk
Charity / Tue 25th Apr 2017 at 07:46am
GET your glow sticks at the ready and grab your friends and family because St Clare Hospice’s Midnight Walk is coming, and you’re invited to the party! On Saturday 1 July, Harlow will be set to ‘light up the night’ for St Clare when its annual neon-themed sponsored 5k and 10k walk takes to the streets for the ninth time in what promises to be the biggest Midnight Walk party yet.
Midnight Walk mania took over the Water Gardens on Friday (21 April) when the St Clare team, clad in neon and accompanied by their tutu-wearing mascot, Clare Bear, officially launched the biggest event in the St Clare calendar.
The event organiser, St Clare’s Fundraising Development Manager, Jamie Hooper, said: “Summer is coming, which means the Midnight Walk is returning once again – and we are so excited to light up the night for St Clare! This year we are aiming to sign-up a record number of party goers and walk, skip and dance until the early hours of the morning!”
Dave Hartery, Operations Manager at the Water Gardens, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the St Clare Midnight Walk once again and to be helping our local hospice’s biggest fundraiser. Every year the Midnight Walk brings such a great atmosphere to Harlow town centre – with hundreds of people gathering for a fantastic cause and in memory of their loved ones. The whole event just has such a feel-good factor – and the Water Gardens is so proud to support St Clare in hosting this special night.”
It really is a MIDNIGHT walk this year as the race starts at 11:00pm and participants will be walking through to approximately 01:00am on Sunday 2 July. Don’t worry though – DJs will be helping to get you in the party mood with music to keep you motivated every step of the way!
This year the charity is offering a special group price – five friends for the price of four. So invite your friends, families and workmates and take part in St Clare’s biggest event!
Tickets for the event are now on sale. Entry cost is £20 per adult (16 years and above), £10 for children (14-15 years) and a special offer price of £80 for a party of 5 adults.
