Join us in London!

This iconic walk will see the community unite to take strides through the Capital, as we reflect, remember and raise awareness of brain tumours. Together, we can lead the way in accelerating cures and helping those diagnosed live longer and better.  

Setting off from Marylebone, you can choose from our stewarded 5km and 10km routes. You’ll take in beautiful twilight views of some of London’s most famous locations, including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.  

The whole route is wheelchair and pushchair accessible. There will also be public toilets, cafes and places to stop for refreshments or a break should you need to. 

All we ask is that you pledge to raise £100. This amount could pay for 10 crucial Information Packs for people newly diagnosed with a brain tumour. Or it could buy 10 DNA preservation tubes for use in one of our clinical trials!

A relaxed thoughtful occasion shared with friends and like-minded strangers, filled with the uplift of stories shared and nature observed, a Twilight Walk is, like twilight itself, is a bookend, punctuation, a moment for peaceful reflection in our busy lives which offers the possibility of a special sunrise offering new hope.
