Walk of Life – Saturday 12th May 2018

Kennet & Avon Canal: Bishops Cannings – Bradford on Avon – Bath

Join The Forever Friends Appeal’s walking marathon, or 10 mile afternoon route, along the Kennet & Avon Canal and support patients and their families at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.

Legendary Glastonbury festival founder Michael Eavis (CBE), will once again be opening the start of the walk’s epic 26.2 mile route at The Crown Inn in Bishops Cannings (near Devizes). The walk then heads along the canal through Bradford on Avon and finishes at the beautiful Holburne Museum in Bath. If you don’t fancy walking a marathon, there is a 10 mile route in the afternoon departing from Bradford on Avon. Whichever distance you chose, every step you take will support patients during their time in hospital, going some of life’s toughest challenges every day.

Open to both men and women, registration costs £20 and you can walk for a ward or department close to your heart or a major campaign – RUH Cancer Care or RNHRD & Therapies Centre. In return walkers will receive a t-shirt, medal, refreshments, lots of support along the way and hopefully some sunshine!

Last year, the event sold out months in advance and the hundreds of walkers who took part helped raise an incredible £130,000. With your help, we hope the Walk of Life will continue to help thousands more patients…and we recommend that you sign up early to avoid disappointment!
