Everyone across Hull and East Yorkshire is being encouraged to take part in Hull’s brightest night-time walk for charity.
Dove House Hospice is looking for people to light up the Humber Bridge this October for their 8-mile circular walk, starting and finishing in Hessle.
The Starlight Stride will take place on Saturday 19th October and starts at 7:30pm. A pre-walk party will get everyone warmed up and walkers can decorate themselves with glow sticks and face paint before they set off.
Anita Brien, Events Coordinator at Dove House Hospice said “The Starlight Stride is a great event whether you want a fun night out with friends or want to get together to celebrate the life of someone no longer with us. Everyone taking part is making a real difference to the lives of people living with a terminal illness across Hull and East Yorkshire.”
Dove House Hospice is this area’s only hospice, providing emotional, practical and emotional support to people living with a terminal illness as well as support to their friends and family. The hospice relies on the donations from the local community to ensure they can support whoever needs them, whenever they need them.
Entry to the Starlight Stride just £15 and those taking part need to raise at least £20 for the hospice. All walkers will receive a t-shirt and a bright neon accessory to wear on the night as well as a medal on the finish line.
