Treetops has launched this year’s Moonlight Walk. The sponsored charity walk will welcome hundreds of people on the evening of Friday 6 September, walking to raise money for the local hospice.

The Moonlight Walk is Derby’s biggest night-time charity walk starting at 8pm. Participants can take on a 5k or 10k route, starting and ending at Bustler Derby.

We are offering an early bird discount entry fee of £12 to the first 200 people to register for the event!

Last year, Treetops cared for over 2,000 local patients living with conditions such as cancer, dementia, and motor neurone disease.

Fundraising is vital to enable the hospice to continue to offer its care completely free of charge.

We can't wait to welcome people to the Moonlight Walk

Vic Rocca, Treetops Relationships Manager – Key Events, explains more:

“We are very excited to launch this year’s Moonlight Walk and can’t wait to welcome people to walk the city streets with us.

“As a registered charity, we need to raise over £4million each year.  We can only achieve this with the support of local people getting behind events such as the Moonlight Walk.

Whether you register by yourself or as part of a team, it’s set to be a night full of fun, laughter and celebration.”

Helping to raise funds for hospice nursing care

Walkers receive an official Moonlight Walk t-shirt and walker number and will receive a medal at the finish line. Party packs are also available to purchase to help walkers stand out on the night.

The standard Moonlight Walk entry fee is £18. Everyone who takes part is encouraged to raise £48 in sponsorship. This will help to fund four hours of Hospice at Home nursing care for patients at the very end of life.

Sponsor the Moonlight Walk

We have several sponsorship opportunities available to businesses of all sizes - from sponsoring a cheer station to giving a gift of kindness.

Sponsors benefit from raising awareness of their brand with thousands of local people.
