Sunrise Walk

The parents we support often find night times the hardest; caring for a child throughout the night or spending time awake worrying what the future holds.

We hope that to encourage 400 walkers to get up at the crack of dawn and raise enough money to help give our families a good night sleep.

So set your alarm clocks and register today!

Sunrise Walk


Our Sunrise Walk is a great way to get together with your family, friends and colleagues. The 13 mile walk is open to both men and women. Dogs and children are of course also welcome on the walk. The walk will start before sunrise so don’t forget your torch!

Last year our first sunrise walk saw 300 walkers raising £48,000 for Shooting Star Chase. This year we’re looking for 400 walkers to take part and we aim to raise over £60,000. Sign up today to be a part of something special!

No matter what your fitness level you can take part and raise vital funds to support local families with babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions.

The walk takes place on Sunday 1st June at 4:30am from the beautiful Ham House. We’re looking to attract walkers from all backgrounds, not just experienced walkers, but families with children who are looking for something different and exciting to take part in.

The route will remain the same as last year. It will take you past some picturesque sights including Richmond Park, Richmond Hill, The Thames, Ham Common, Bushy Park and Home Park near Hampton Court Palace.

We’re looking for 400 walkers to take part. Are you up for the challenge?

We are also offering the first 200 walkers that sign up the opportunity to go into a free prize draw to win a weekend away at a hotel in West London including dinner and breakfast.

*Online registration is now CLOSED but don’t worry you can still sign up on the day!*

Registration opens at 3:45am at Ham House.

Entry prices will remain the same, £24.00 Adult, £16.00 Child.

The weather is set to be dry and sunny, making it a perfect morning for a walk!

If you have recently registered your pack will be sent to you first class so this will be on its way to you. If your pack does not arrive in time you will be able to collect all you need on the morning.  In the meantime, we have uploaded further information about the morning here.
