Rainbows Hospice Walk of Life 2012

I am writing with regard to our forthcoming Superhero Sunday Walk of Life being held Sunday 27th May at Leics Cricket Ground. I was wondering whether you would be able to publicise the event on your sites as we are looking for both walkers and volunteers. I have attached a poster plus some further information regarding the walk.

Many thanks


This year’s walk takes place on Sunday 27th of May starting at Leicestershire County Cricket Club, Grace Road, Leicester, LE2 8AD at 10:30am. The route for 2012 will take you 5 or 15 miles around Leicester before finishing back at the Cricket Club. Entrants are encouraged to dress as their favourite Superhero – but this is of course optional. Registration will be from 9.00am.

At Rainbows the families we support are the real Superheroes having to face difficult situations every day, so you could be a hero for them by signing up. Every walking Superhero will receive a medal and goody bag. Registration for all walkers over the age of sixteen costs £5.00 per person. Register at or by using the enclosed form. Once we have received your registration, we will send out your information and sponsorship pack.

We hope that more people than ever will put their best foot forward to support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People this year. As you know Rainbows is the only hospice for children and young people in the East Midlands, and relies heavily on support from local people to provide care & support for children and young people who need it most.

The money that you raise for this event will help us to continue offering these essential services, and we are extremely grateful to you for taking part. Why not create a just giving page and make it easy for your friends and family to sponsor you. if you do set up a just giving page please ensure your closing date is the 27th July 2012 as this is the deadline date for sponsorship.

If you would like any further information, or to request further registration forms for friends and family, please contact us on 0800 952 1133, email, or visit
