Dove House Hospice’s annual Starlight Stride is back for 2021 and registration is now open.
Stride to remember, stride to say thanks, stride for Dove House. People from all over the city will be coming together on Saturday 25 September to remember their loved ones, celebrate their local community and raise funds for their local hospice.
Join the party and walk the 5k or 10k route around Hull city centre, lighting up the streets as you stride together. A pre-walk party will get you warmed up before you set off from Prince’s Quay. All walkers will receive a t-shirt and a bright neon accessory to wear on the night, as well as a medal when you cross the finish line.
Karinda Martine, Head of Communications and Events, at the hospice said: “We are so excited to bring the Starlight Stride back after cancelling the event in 2021. The Starlight Stride is a fantastic opportunity to join together with family and friends and enjoy a night-time walk in our beautiful city, whilst raising vital funds for Dove House too.
The Coronavirus pandemic had a huge impact on the hospice’s ability to raise funds, with events and activities cancelled and our retail shops shut for much of last year. Dove House got through these worrying months with the support of the local community and we are hoping people from across the region will join us to celebrate all we have been through in the last 18 months and to help raise funds that will mean the hospice doors stay open for everyone who needs our specialist care.”
Dove House provides expert specialist care to adults in Hull and East Yorkshire with progressive life limiting illnesses. The patient and their family are at the centre of the care provided by a multi-disciplinary team who go the extra mile to provide moments that truly matter.
