Are you ready to slip on your trainers and get out and about in the great outdoors?

Our biggest fundraising event WALK FOR WARDS is back with a bang in 2021 – and we’d love for you to join us this summer.

This year we aren’t able to hold our sponsored walk event in the usual way. Instead, we’re inviting you to take part in our first ever virtual Walk For Wards.

You can show your support for the NHS by walking whenever and wherever you like throughout the month of July - by yourself or with friends, family and colleagues.

Registration Fee: £2 per person, £6 for a team of 4, or £10 for a team of 6

When you sign up to take part, we’ll send you a Walk For Wards welcome pack including everything you need to know about this year’s event, including a special iron-on badge so you can proudly share your challenge.

There is no minimum sponsorship but if you raise £50 or more we’ll send you a medal to say thank you. Break through the £100 barrier and you’ll receive a medal and an Imperial Health Charity T-shirt.

The challenge …

We’re challenging you to walk the distance between our five London hospitals – that’s 11.4km. But how you tackle the challenge is up to you.

Whether you fancy taking on the distance 10 times over or if you’d prefer to complete a simple half lap, the choice is yours. You can do all your walking in one day or spread it out across the whole month.

You can choose from the following distance options:
Half lap – 5.6km
1 lap – 11.4km
2 laps – 22.8km
5 laps – 57km
10 laps – 114km

However you choose to take part, please make sure you follow the government guidance in place at the time so you can enjoy Walk For Wards safely.


Your fundraising

The last 12 months has been one of the toughest the NHS has ever faced - and every penny you raise by taking part in Walk For Wards will help us improve patient care and provide extra support for hard-working hospital staff at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

You can choose to raise money for a specific hospital, ward or department at any of the Trust’s five London hospitals. If you’re not sure where you’d like your money to go, let us know and we’ll make sure it goes to wherever the need is greatest
