Description

The Twilight Walk is coming to East Lancashire!

As you may know, Laura Nuttall was diagnosed with multiple brain tumours last November. She's been through a craniotomy, radiotherapy and is half way through a gruelling 12 months of chemo.

The Brain Tumour Charity were a huge support to the family during the darkest of times and Laura has now become a Young Ambassador for the charity, helping them to raise funds, raise awareness and fund research into the cancer that kills more children and adults under 40 than any other and yet receives less than 3% of the total funding.

Laura's spent the last 6 months distributing Headsmart leaflets to help the early identification of symptoms and now she's hoping to raise vital funds for research through the Twilight Walk.

Our Twilight Walk is a 10k event that people of all ages can get involved in. It is a (mostly) off road route that starts at Holt House in Colne and includes Alkincoats Park, reservoirs, fields and the Leeds to Liverpool canal tow path, a lovely scenic route across a mix of terrains. Bring your dog, your friends and your walking shoes and you'll be rewarded with a T-Shirt AND a medal when you finish.

Ideally we'd like every entrant to raise as much sponsorship as possible but as a minimum we'd suggest £20 per adult and £10 per child which will go straight to the charity.
You can either bring the cash on the night or even better we have a group just giving page here....

Registration starts at 3:30 with the Walk commencing at 4pm to make the most of the views and hopefully we'll be almost finished before it goes dark (but bring a torch just in case!)

We'll have tea, coffee and cakes available at the finish so please do stay and replenish all those expended calories.

We hope to raise enough money to fund 2 weeks of research into kinder and more effective treatments for brain tumours so our target is £3,500. So please register, tell all your friends and bring them along to raise as much money as possible for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Please remember to register each person attending the walk, including children. This is so you all receive a t-shirt and medal.

Once you have registered you will receive an email which will give further details of the Walk, a sponsor from for you to print off and some tips for fundraising.Registration is free for everyone! We just ask that you donate or get sponsorship to raise much needed funds for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Looking forward to seeing you all #walkwithus #acurecantwait

Thanks for your support

Laura, Nicola, Mark and Gracie x
