Sparkle to support women’s health at University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity’s Twilight Walk this May
After last year’s virtual event, University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity’s Twilight Walk for Women’s Health is back in person and brighter than ever, with this year’s glittery theme! We are inviting the local community to join us on Friday 6 May 2022 and dazzle in their most sparkly outfits as they walk or run the sponsored 5km route through Harbourside Park, Poole starting at Baiter recreation ground.
Thousands of women in our community are living with serious breast or gynaecological health concerns. It could be your mum, daughter, sister, or grandmother. It could be your wife, partner, best-friend, or colleague. Whoever they are, every one of our women’s health patients rely on the care provided at our hospitals. So, we are once again asking Dorset to walk with us for every woman in our community.
As participants set off from 7pm they will be able to take in the sights of Poole’s famous harbour whilst making their way along the fully accessible route. This family-friendly event is suitable for all ages and abilities.
Since 2013, our amazing Twilight Walk participants have raised over £150,000 for breast and gynaecological projects. This year we hope to build on that success and continue to raise money for new state-of-the-art equipment. The money you raise could help us fund new scanning and imaging technology to enable a swift diagnosis, and scalp cooling caps to support women undergoing breast and gynaecological cancer treatment.
Twilight Walk for Women’s Health is kindly sponsored by The Stock Shop who said “We are thrilled to support University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity’s Twilight Walk for Women’s Health. We have been part of University Hospitals Dorset for nearly 2 years and as a business it is of great importance to us that we support the hospital and the local community. We are delighted to be part of an event that is so valued by the Dorset community and which raises vital funds for patients and staff at University Hospitals Dorset.”
Tickets are priced at £15 for adults and £8 for children (under 5s go free) – adults will receive their very own Twilight Walk t-shirt!
Twilight Walk is not just a fundraising event, it’s a celebration of the women in our community.
