Every step you take will help make every moment count for bereaved families

Get together with your family and friends and join us on our annual Sunrise Walk. 

With two routes to choose from in a picturesque setting, 10km or 20km, anyone can take part – whether you’re an experienced walker or enjoy a stroll with your family and friends.

Now in its fifth year, the Sunrise Walk has so far attracted over 1,000 walkers who have raised an impressive £175,000. By taking part in the Sunrise Walk 2017 you can help us reach our target of £60,000 so we can continue providing a lifeline for parents, siblings and other family members who are coping with the devastating loss of a child.

The Walk Routes
Our main 20km route will remain the same as previous years, and we now have a 10km route which is ideal for families with young children. The routes will take you past some stunning sights including Richmond Park, Richmond Hill, The Thames, Ham Common, Bushy Park and Hampton Court Palace – what a way to start a Sunday morning!

Free Lantern
If you’re walking in memory and would like to hang a lantern on our Celebration Tree to light the start line, you can request this upon registration.

Celebration Picnic At Ham House
Friends and family are welcome to come and join you at the finish line where you will receive your medal at our celebration picnic. All medal holders are welcomed by Ham House to explore the gardens free of charge and use the facilities, including the café and shop.
