Sunrise to Remember: Virtual Edition

Night to Remember midnight walk is back, with an exciting twist, on Saturday 12 September! We have been working hard behind the scenes and are thrilled to bring you the… Sunrise to Remember: Virtual Edition 2020


Walk #TogetherApart for local hospice care

Sunrise to Remember: Virtual Edition is a 7 mile walk with a difference, as we bring all the excitement, camaraderie, and togetherness of the big day right to you, wherever you are.

As the sun rises we will join together, starting from our own homes, walking from the darkness into the light, bringing with us hope and unity and support – for our patients, for our nurses and for each other.

This isn’t just a virtual event, we will be #TogetherApart every step of the way.

Registration is £12 per person, kids under 10 go free! All under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult.

Closing date for registrations is 6 September 2020.

There is no minimum sponsorship but your registration fee covers the cost of the event only, so every additional pound you can raise goes directly to support local people and their families cared for by St Barnabas House.

Sign up today!

How the Sunrise to Remember: Virtual Edition works

You are invited to join us for all the pre-event fun live on our Facebook page from 6am on Saturday 12 September.

There will be messages from the hospice, a live group warm up and opportunities for you to remember your loved ones and make a dedication. And, we will all come together to watch the sunrise before you set out on your challenge to walk 7 miles for local hospice care.

At 6.45am, we’ll all start our individual walks. Just set off from your front door or location of your choice, on your chosen route. You can take part alone, walk with someone from your household, or in a small socially distanced group (following government guidelines).

Whilst you will be physically walking apart from other participants, we’ll be bringing everyone together on the day – virtually – as we walk #TogetherApart for local hospice care.

Broadcasting live on Facebook and YouTube both before and after your walk, you can also expect plenty of other Facebook posts 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.

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!
