Walk Ten for Marie Curie Cancer Care this Summer

Marie Curie Cancer Care is calling on everyone to 'Walk Ten' this summer, to help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.


Marie Curie Cancer Care is calling on everyone to Walk Ten this summer, to help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.


Walk Ten is a series of unique 10k summer evening walks taking place at 25 beautiful locations across the UK, which is sponsored by home emergency insurer HomeServe for a third year. After each walk, there will be fun activities such as fireworks, picnics and live music throughout the evening to celebrate the work of Marie Curie Nurses.


Many of the venues, which include the estates of stately homes, are usually closed to the public in the evening, meaning Walk Ten participants enjoy exclusive access.


Outdoor enthusiast and keen walker Julia Bradbury said:Ive had the privilege of taking part in Marie Curies Walk Ten and Id strongly urge others to sign up. Walking in the British countryside is a great passion of mine and the chance to enjoy sunset walks at magnificent venues is truly not to be missed. As well as being a fun event to do with friends and family, its great to know that by taking part youre helping to raise crucial funds to allow Marie Curie Nurses to continue to provide care at home to terminally ill patients day in, day out. The walks end with a celebration of the work of Marie Curie Nurses, making it an even more memorable and special occasion.


The walks all take place between July and September. Registration is 10 per person (children go free) and everyone is encouraged to raise as much as possible to support Marie Curie Cancer Care. All the funds raised will allow Marie Curie Nurses to provide more hours of care, totally free, for terminally ill people in their own homes and in the charitys hospices.
