Registration for the Sunrise Walk has now closed, but don’t worry you can join the 250 walkers by signing up on the morning. Please visit the info and downloads tab on the right for information about the event including start times and maps etc. If you are planning on signing up on the morning please bring cash or make cheques payable to Shooting Star Chase. 

Our care doesn’t stop after a child has died. We continue to provide practical and emotional support for the entire family for as long as they need.

By taking part in the Sunrise Walk you can help us raise over £40,000 so we can continue providing a lifeline for parents, siblings and other family members who are coping with the devastating loss of a child.

With three routes to choose from in a picturesque setting, anyone can take part – whether you’re an experienced walker or enjoy a stroll with your family and friends.

The walk takes place on Sunday 31st May 2015 at 4:30am at the beautiful Ham House near Richmond, and starts with lighting a paper lantern to remember a loved one.

In it’s third year, the Sunrise Walk has so far attracted over 500 walkers who have raised an impressive £85,000. For 2015 we’re looking for 300 walkers and we aim to raise over £40,000.

Sign up today to be a part of something special.

Our main 20km route will remain the same as previous years, and we now have a shorter 10km route and a longer 30km route.

The routes will take you past some stunning sights including Richmond Park, Richmond Hill, The Thames, Ham Common, Bushy Park and Home Park near Hampton Court Palace.

Are you up for the challenge?
