How the Sunrise to Remember: Virtual Edition works

By broadcasting live on Facebook and YouTube before the event we will bring you; a live group warm up and opportunities for you to remember your loved ones and make a dedication. And, we will all come together (virtually) to watch the sunrise before you set out on your challenge.

At 6.45am, they’ll be a countdown and then we’ll all start together on our individual 7 mile walks. You can take part alone, walk as a family or in a small socially distanced group (following government guidelines). Anyone can do it, you can be 2 or 90, everyone is welcome.

Whilst we are broadcasting live on Facebook and YouTube both before and after your walk, you can let us know how you are getting on, tell us why you are taking part in Sunrise to Remember and expect plenty of interaction to keep you motivated from start to finish.

On top of this, tune into More Radio Worthing (107.7FM) who will be hosting an extra special Sunrise to Remember Takeover just for you. Playing all your favourite song requests and messages to help keep a spring in your step. Just tune in and take part!

The week before your walk:

Everyone is welcome. You will be able to download your Activity Pack to get your walker numbers, mile markers, medal and children’s activity sheet so you’re all set for the big day.

Take advantage of our face paint tutorials, t-shirt customisation ideas and make sure you have everything you need for the breakfast of champions cook along!

On the day:

A big virtual welcome, live warm up, good luck messages from volunteers and supporters and a countdown to the start of the walk. We are in this together – walking #TogetherApart!

After your walk:

Join back in to the Facebook event for digital cheers to celebrate your success, well done messages from supporters and a breakfast of champions cook along!
