After the huge success of Shine Night Walk in 2014, Cancer Research UK are launching their 2015 event. Be part of this incredible night by signing up for either the full or half night-time walking marathon on Saturday September 26. Gather your friends and family, enter together and join the fight against cancer.
Say ‘Stuff sleep!’ and stand up to this disease by joining Cancer Research UK and a team from Time Out for a magical night-time walk across London. Beginning at Southwark Park, walkers in bright, shiny clothes carrying lights and glowsticks will follow a route taking in some of the capital’s most iconic buildings, floodlit and shining in the dark – including Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and The Shard – before finishing at Old Billingsgate.
Over 16,000 people took part in Shine Night Walk 2014. The result: more than £4 million was raised to fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. An outstanding effort, full of hard work and dedication, but this year Cancer Research UK want to do even better. Because the more money they raise, the more chance they have of beating cancer sooner and saving lives.
Who can participate?
Anyone over the age of 13 can sign up for Shine Night Walk 2015. You can choose to raise money for one of 12 specific areas of cancer research – perhaps a type of cancer that has affected you or a loved one. Or raise money for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research into all cancers.
