Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is delighted to announce that its Star Shine Walk will still take place this year… becoming a virtual event for the first time ever! This new version of the popular memory walk, sponsored by the Cambridgeshire Care Home, invites participants to accumulate 20,000 steps between 23 May, and 6 June 2020.

20,000 steps is the equivalent of the 10 mile route originally planned for the event, which would have wound around the iconic streets of Cambridge. It is a significant challenge but has been designed so that it can be achieved in line with the Government’s latest guidelines around exercise.

Events Officer, Angeline Liles comments:

“Anyone can take part, wherever you live! We’re especially thrilled to be able to still offer this special event to our loyal supporters, many of whom take part year after year. The money raised through sponsorship is absolutely vital for ensuring Cambridgeshire’s Hospice can keep caring for those who need our services, which are all free of charge to the 4,000+ patients we care for each year. At this time our normal fundraising activities have been hit hard, and yet it’s a time when we need to raise more funds than ever.”
