IT'S NOT JUST A WALK IN THE PARK
Sunday 21 October, Oxford University Parks
3-mile autumnal stroll around, suitable for people of all ages,
wheelchairs and buggies
Each year 750,000 people are treated at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust for a diverse range of conditions. Many patients, their families and others in the community want to do something to help the part of the Hospital that has helped them. By taking part in this three-mile sponsored walk you can choose which ward, department, research projects of Fund you would like to support to ‘do your bit’ to say thank you.
Whether it’s the Delivery Suite at the Horton, the Motor Neurone Disease Clinic, the Breast Reconstruction Group, Children’s Hospital or the Cancer and Heart Centre, for example, all you need to do is complete the entry form overleaf and tell us which part of the hospital you would like to support.
‘It’s Not Just a Walk in the Park’ is suitable for all the family, abilities and ages, and the route is pram and wheelchair friendly.
It’s just £7.50 to enter and children under 16 walk for free. We ask you to aim to raise at least £50 in sponsorship for your chosen cause. We will provide sponsorship forms or you can create an online fundraising page once you have registered.
Jayne Grainger, a patient of the Oxford Cancer Centre, explains why she is walking for the Centre, ‘Last year I took part in the Walk after having had an enormous tumour removed at the Oxford Cancer Centre. Like many people I wanted to give something back, and this walk was a lovely way to do just that. It is such a beautiful route and there was a very special atmosphere on the day as staff, former and current patients and their families came together to do something positive for their local hospitals.’
By taking part in this walk you will be helping thousands of patients treated across our hospitals – funding additional equipment, research and better facilities.
