Marie Curie Walk to Remember

Marie Curie is encouraging people in Aberdeen and the shire to get together with friends and family and walk 10k around Hazlehead on Saturday August 29 to raise money for people living with a terminal illness.

After the walk, which starts at 6.30pm everyone can enjoy an evening of celebrations as the sun goes down, including live music, fire poi, and picnics .

The Marie Curie Walk to Remember in Hazlehead Park is part of a national series of 10k walks and celebrations at 17 stunning venues throughout the UK this summer. Registration is £10 per person (children under-16 go free; on the night adult registration is £20) and there is a minimum fundraising ask of £100, which pays for five hours of care from Marie Curie. All funds raised will help Marie Curie provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones at home.

Lauren Edwards, Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie, said: “By signing up for Walk to Remember at Hazlehead, Aberdeen and reaching the fundraising target, you’ll be helping Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support to help people living with a terminal illness get the most from their time.”
