Walk for wards

Walk for Wards Logo SmallCome and join us on Saturday 23 August at Preston Park in Eaglescliffe from 9.30am for a fun filled day with your family.

Don something purple along with your walking boots or just come along and support the wards at your local hospital.

This is the second purple walk to benefit the haematology department at James Cook and the first event in our ‘walk for wards’ programme – a national event where walkers can show support for their local hospitals.

Open to all ages and abilities, there will be something for everyone to enjoy in addition to the one and three mile walks. Food and refreshments will be available on the day with a host of other fun outdoor activities. The RAF Falcons parachute display team will be dropping to show case their thrilling air acrobatics to entertain the crowds.
