Sign ups soar for spectacular summer fundraiser
MORE THAN 150 people have already signed up for Harrogate’s biggest summer community event.
And there are still two days left to join them in taking advantage of an early bird entry offer for Saint Michael’s Midnight Walk. Those securing their place at the event, supported by Engage Mutual, before midnight on Sunday April 1 will register for the special price of just £10.
The quarter marathon fundraiser takes place this year on Saturday June 30 and will raise money for people living with terminal illness and bereavement.
Saint Michael’s chief executive, Tony Collins, said: “The Midnight Walk is such a popular event for our community and there’s been a rush of people signing up online. But with limited places available, we are urging people to take advantage of the early bird offer and sign up today to avoid missing out. Since 2007, our Midnight Walkers have raised more than £500,000 to support families in our community living with terminal illness and bereavement – that is a huge impact and something that everyone involved can be very proud of.”
The 6.5mile sponsored walk will start and finish at the Yorkshire Event Centre on the Great Yorkshire Showground, Wetherby Road, and follow a well lit, fully marshalled circular route around Harrogate town centre.
For the fifth year running the event is sponsored by Engage Mutual. The event is also being supported by two media partners, Harrogate Advertiser and 97.2 Stray FM.
Places are limited and participants must pre-register before Friday June 15. Registration price after Sunday April 1 is £12 for adults, and £6 for under 16s.
People can secure their place online today here. Alternatively, paper registration forms are available from any Saint Michael’s shop or by calling the hospice on (01423) 879 687.
