It’s the Terrence Higgins Trust annual Walk For Life next month and the HIV and sexual health charity is calling for action heroes, child stars and sirens of the silver screen to take part in this year’s Tinsel Town themed event.
The 10km sponsored walk around central London on Sunday 7th June starts and ends at Bloomsbury Square Gardens, winding its way through the City of London, across Tower Bridge and along the South Bank, before heading north over Waterloo Bridge and back to the finish line. The walk begins at 11am and takes around two to three hours to complete. At the finish line, participants will be given a medal, which unlocks a range of special offers at bars and restaurants in central London. Sonya Trivedy, Director of Fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust, said, “All of our supporters are stars to us, so it couldn’t be more fitting to be rolling out the red carpet at this year’s Walk for Life. There’s no audition necessary; we’re just calling for matinee idols, leading ladies, and even pampered pets to sign up and help raise funds for people living with HIV. However much you help raise through sponsorship, it will make a real difference to people who are in desperate need, so please sign up to this year’s event.” To join in the fun, either as an individual walker or as part of a team, please register at www.walkforlife.co.uk or call (020) 7812 1665. Registration costs £10 per person, which helps Terrence Higgins Trust cover the costs of the event. The sponsorship money raised will be ring-fenced for Terrence Higgins Trust’s Hardship Fund, a project that offers grants to people living with HIV in severe financial need.
