The Twilight Walk

Side by side, stride by stride, let’s pick up the pace towards a cure!

Our flagship event, The Twilight Walk, is back! This inspiring event sees our community across the world unite to propel progress towards a cure. Join us in-person at our first ever London Twilight Walk, or stride out remotely and tackle a Twilight Walk Own Walk.

Over the past nine years, The Twilight Walk has raised an extraordinary £2.8 million and united over 10,000 people for those affected by brain tumours. So please join us to keep up the momentum this year, and help us as we do more for a cure.

Together, we’ll beat brain tumours sooner.

Join our first ever London Twilight Walk

After two years of needing to remotely come together to stride towards a cure, we’re delighted to announce our new in-person event, as, for the first time ever, The Twilight Walk is coming to London! Join us on 25 March 2023 to take in the beautiful views of some of London’s iconic destinations as we tackle a 10km walk together – side by side, stride by stride towards a world where brain tumours are defeated.

Things to look forward to at The Twilight Walk London:

  • – Music
  • – Face painting, temporary tattoos and arts & crafts
  • – A chance to find out about new, exciting campaigns and research projects
  • – Time to get to know other walkers on the day
  • – A special warm-up routine to get you ready for the walk
  • – Refreshments to keep you going

Hold your own walk, that’s special for you

Stride out anywhere, any time in March to make up the distance to your chosen goal. You can opt for our traditional 10km, go further with our more challenging distances of 40km or 130km, or pick your very own distance. And, if you don’t fancy taking on a hefty hike in one go, you can split the challenge into any number of shorter walks!

Sign up for FREE to get your Twilight Walk t-shirt and if you raise £100 or more, we’ll send you a bespoke medal in the post.

To hold your own walk, simply:

– Pick any date in March to hold your walk, or choose to do it over multiple days
– Choose a location that’s special for you
– Plan your route (whatever the length)
– Stride out solo or get a team together

Walk it your way, beat brain tumours together!

My journey was, in many ways, long and difficult, but I was one of the lucky ones who benefited from charity supported research – I received a new treatment and after twenty years I am now tumour free. So a Twilight Walk each autumn brings me the opportunity to give back, to thank the charity and the community and to share my story of hope.
