Walk 2.5km or 10km in memory of your loved one:

Taking place on Saturday 15 June, the Memory Walk is a special way for you to come together with your family and friends to celebrate and remember someone special.

This year’s walk will once again start and finish at the stunning Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens. Doors will open at 4pm, and at 5pm we’ll join together for a moment of reflection before you warm-up and set-off on your walk. You can choose the family-friendly 2.5km or 10km route.  

By signing up to our Memory Walk, you’ll be joining hundreds of incredible supporters who come together and raise vital funds so more people have the chance to be with their loved ones in their last moments.

Who will you walk for?

You’ll also be invited to dedicate a heart in memory of who you’re walking for to be displayed on our memory wall at the Botanical Gardens for the evening. For an additional donation, you can also receive a keepsake heart to collect and take home on the day, as a reminder of a special evening.
