It’s that time of year again…
For the fifth year, Isle of Wight Radio is proud to be the official media partner of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice Walk The Wight - and once again, we'll be with you every step of the way!
Now that all of the festivities are out of the way it is the perfect opportunity to get tired bodies moving again in training for the epic fundraising walk. Let's make this year the BIGGEST yet!
Walk the Wight is on Sunday 12th May, and registration is now open! There is a choice of four walks...
Main Walk – Bembridge to Alum Bay (26 Miles) - do the original marathon walk!
Half – Bembridge to Carisbrooke (12 Miles) - join everyone at the start for the first half of the biggest fund raising event on the Island!
Half – Carisbrooke to Alum Bay (14 Miles) - take in the beauty of the West Wight as you make your way to the finish line of Walk The Wight.
Flat Walk – Sandown to Shide (8 Miles) - ideal for beginners, families with pushchairs, young kids - or those who simply want to walk along the cycle path and raise money at the same time for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice!
To register you simply need to visit Walk the Wight where you can register free online for all of the walks. Alternatively, you can pick up registration forms from all of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice Charity Shops or by calling (01983) 528989.
You can also text your donation - just text WTW to 70007 to donate £3 to Earl Mountbatten Hospice. Texts cost £3 plus one standard rate message. From most donors EMH will receive the full £3 with a minimum of £2.97 depending on your network provider.
Why not buy a momento of the occasion! As part of a Young Enterprise project, Island students have produced for sale two keyrings for Walk The Wight 2013 - costing just £1 each, the money raised will go to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice!
