If you can’t take part on 25 June then no problem, just sign up and do it in your own time. From Saturday 18 June walk anywhere at any time and raise money for your local hospice. Every additional pound you raise makes a big difference.

Post a pic on social media in your Sunrise to Remember event t-shirt, and we’ll send you an exclusive medal and certificate. Even completing the walk virtually brings you a huge sense of pride as every pound you raise makes a big difference.

All you need to do is choose 10 or 20km and get it done in your own time. If you can’t make the live event, then make sure you’re part of our Facebook event page where you can share your photos and be part of the camaraderie with others who couldn’t make the live event.

The live and in person event will be held on 25 June starting from Worthing Leisure centre on a safe and marshalled route through Worthing and surrounding areas. Starting at 4.15am, sunrise will be at 4.44am.

What to expect:

  • 100s of walkers setting off for a trek around the varied terrain and scenery of Worthing.
  • The route is lead by a lead walker – and there’ll be trained volunteers keeping everyone safe!
  • Take your time getting round, or challenge yourself to get a personal best.
  • They’ll also be a memory tree on the route where you can make a personal dedication to someone you’ve lost.
  • Everyone will meet at the finish line for some fun and bucks fizz!

Why take on a charity walk?

The walk was challenging but there is such a great atmosphere, and you just forget that and keep on walking. I felt a personal achievement, but it was shared with so many other people crossing the finish line.
