Join us for Walk Together to stop people dying of bowel cancer
Registrations are now open for our annual Walk Together events this September.
Walk Together is a series of sponsored walks bringing people together to show our support for those undergoing treatment, remember loved ones and help stop people dying from bowel cancer.
The five mile walks are happening across the UK throughout September:
Edinburgh, Sunday 1 September: In the heart of Edinburgh this walk is a picturesque route along the Water of Leigh and the Royal Botanic Garden.
Louise walked with us in Scotland to remember her dad: “Walk Together was a positive and important thing for us to do only months after being devastated by the loss of my Dad. The surroundings, people and atmosphere helped to make the day special. We were very keen to raise money in Dad’s memory, for research into this awful disease.”
Belfast, Saturday 7 September: Walkers will go along the peaceful Lagan Towpath and pass through the beautiful Belvoir Park Forest.
Danielle joined our Northern Ireland walk in memory of her mum: “Last year my family and I took part in Walk Together Belfast. It was a lovely sunny day, which made the walk along the Lagan Towpath so enjoyable. In July 2017, I lost my beautiful mum to bowel cancer. We were delighted to take part and raise much needed funds for an incredible charity so very close to our hearts.”
London, Saturday 14 September: This iconic walk will take you past some of the capital’s most famous landmarks including Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe.
Kim joined our London walk last year to support her dad: “My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in May 2015. I took part in Walk Together to help raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK, which supports patients and their families through such difficult times. It was a fantastic experience that meant so much to me and we’ll look forward to joining everyone again this year!”
Cardiff, Saturday 28 September: This circular route along Cardiff Bay is steeped in history and packed with scenic views of the Bristol Channel.
Caroline and her family walked with us in Wales to meet other people affected by the disease: “My family and I really enjoyed Walk Together Cardiff. It was a brilliant way to meet other families in a similar situation and catch up with people that have been such a great support and comfort to me whilst having treatment. My son was very proud to have done it and shows his medal off to everyone!”
If you can’t make our date or locations, you can organise your own Walk Together event somewhere special in your local area. It’s easy to do and our team will be there to support you every step of the way.
Our vision is a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer but we can’t achieve this alone, join us for Walk Together this September.
