The route takes in Chester’s historic town centre, including the Castle, the River Dee, the town gardens, and the charming Cathedral.
Whether you’re a supporter, a researcher or a healthcare professional please walk The Twilight Walk with us. We want to make this a family affair so please bring your children (there’s no age limit, although children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult), your parents, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, colleagues and friends. We are uniting the entire brain tumour community to show that together, we will win the fight.
Registration is £15 for adults and £10 for children (under 5s are free), which includes a special edition t-shirt to wear on the night, refreshments, a medal and The Twilight Walk goody bag. There’s no minimum sponsorship target but each of our walks could fund a pioneering research project for a year if everyone raised £100.
