Participants can choose a 1km, 5km or 10km route that passes through exciting hero-themed zones. Dress up as your favourite superhero, use the walk to remember a special hero in your life or walk to celebrate the heroes providing care at Dorothy House.

Why get involved?

There’s a myth that hospices are just places to die. In truth, our job is to help everyone live their life to its fullest potential. By connecting with people earlier after their diagnosis, we can help them achieve their personal goals – no matter how big or small.

We believe in creating memories and encourage people to explore their wishes, thoughts and fears so they can make informed plans for themselves and their loved ones. For us, a ‘good death’ means leaving the world at peace, with dignity and supported by compassionate care. To help people achieve the best death possible, we provide outstanding care and support, when it matters most.

Our work touches so many lives and is completely free of charge. Without heroes like you, Dorothy House Hospice Care simply couldn’t operate. Our goal is to help more people and deliver care when it’s really needed by patients and their families.

Your sponsorship in action:

£28 could pay for an hour’s time of a Nurse Specialist, delivering care to patients in our community.

£180 could pay for a full night of a Hospice at Home carer’s time, allowing a patient’s family to get some much-needed rest.

Or why not get a team together and set yourself a goal of raising £2500 all together and this could provide 24 hours of nursing and health care assistant’s time on our Inpatient Unit.
