St Michael’s Hospice gives you moonlight and memories in your own back garden

St Michael’s Hospice is asking its supporters to join in the very first virtual Moonlight and Memories Walk being held during lockdown.

Previously hosted under the full moon in June, the popular ten kilometre walk celebrates love, life and friendship and encourages people to remember their loved ones by making dedications – which you might have seen blowing in the wind on the gates of Hastings Pier.

Due to the Government guidelines surrounding the Coronavirus crisis and implementation of social distancing, the Hospice has taken the decision to cancel the event in its previous format and instead, is asking supporters to sign up to the virtual version of the event.

You can choose how to complete your 10K challenge? It’s roughly equivalent to about 12,500 steps; in your house and garden, as part of your daily exercise, or even breaking it down into more manageable distances to suit your current routine.

Everyone who takes part and raises sponsorship money for St Michael’s Hospice, will receive an exclusive Moonlight and Memories 2020 t-shirt and a free warm-up video, kindly created by local Personal Trainer JasFit and available to view on the St Michael’s Hospice website.

The Hospice’s Facebook event page will become a dedicated memory wall, where supporters can share their stories, post photos, and write their dedications to loved ones.

Registration is £15 per person via Eventbrite and the event is sponsored by Arthur C Towner Ltd.
