Side by side, stride by stride, let’s pick up the pace of progress
It’s back! This autumn sees the return of The Twilight Walk, starting in Warwick on 29 September. We then head to Windsor on 6 October and Edinburgh on 13 October.
And throughout October, we know many more of you will be organising your own walks helping to beat brain tumours faster.
Last year, The Twilight Walk saw a record-breaking 5,600 people unite to raise £671,000 for those affected by brain tumours.
This is enough to fund over seven-and-a-half years of research. So please join us to keep up the momentum this year, and help us as we do more for a cure.
“We’ve walked every year since 2016 and will for as long as we can,” says Natalie, whose son James was diagnosed with a brain tumour aged nine.
“It’s great to do for The Charity, to raise awareness and money for research and you don’t have to rush, just take your time and enjoy the scenery.”
We’re hoping to see record numbers at the three Charity-organised walks but we know that so many of you are rallying your own communities, families and friends to host your own.
The Twilight Walk helps to show people affected by brain tumours that they are not alone.
“Organising the walk and just being involved in The Twilight Walk, it gives us a real sense of that camaraderie,” says Nathan.
“You can feel the commitment of each person involved in this challenge – all walking together, for the same reason – to fund more research and to stamp out brain tumours.”
Last year we had researchers, nurses, those who are personally affected, friends and family and it was wonderful to do this to show that shoulder-to-shoulder, we can create change.
