Walk Ten Castle Howard event in aid of Marie Cure Cancer Care
11:12am Wednesday 20th June 2012 in Ryedale news
FOUR-LEGGED friends and their owners are invited to take part in Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Walk Ten at Castle Howard this summer Walk Ten Castle Howard is a 10k twilight walk taking place on Saturday, August 4, at 7pm.
The event includes something for everyone with exclusive access to stunning views on the walk’s route, Castle Howard’s spectacular lighting, live music, picnicking and silent fireworks, all to raise vital funds for the local Marie Curie nursing services providing end of life care to terminally ill local people in their own homes.
Charlotte Toplass, a volunteer, is taking her dog Harvey to the event.
She said: “I think Harvey is looking forward to the event as much as I am. He’s already collecting some money on his very own doggy sponsor form and we are looking forward to taking an evening stroll around such a beautiful area for a fantastic cause. We can’t wait to show our support for the wonderful work Marie Curie nurses do.”
There will be a zumba warm up prior to the walk. Registration costs £10 and includes a Walk Ten t-shirt and fundraising pack. Children under 16 and dogs don’t need to register but can still collect sponsorship.
The event was attended by more than 600 people last year and raised £27,000 for Marie Curie nurses locally and helped Marie Curie Cancer Care provide more free care.
