Go Bright!
Walking For Charity

This summer West Essex and East Herts charity, St Clare Hospice, is holding their first-ever family-friendly 5k fundraiser, the Go Bright Walk, and it will be well worth the trip over to Harlow to take part in this colourful event!

The inaugural Go Bright Walk will be taking place in the Water Gardens, Harlow, on Saturday 14th July 2018 and features a family 5k fun run or walk around the town, plus a festival of stalls, games and treats at The Watergardens. Event organisers aim to raise more than £15,000 to fund the charity’s vital care and hope to recruit more than 500 walkers to join the ‘brightest 5k in town’.

The event organiser, St Clare’s Challenges and Events Fundraiser, Emma Broadbent, said: ‘Our first-ever Go Bright Walk promises to be the brightest 5k in town! It is the perfect event to kick-start your summer with the whole family. Setting off at 11am, and with a free family festival of stalls, games and treats taking place all day, there is something for everyone to enjoy.’

‘The lovely, bright St Clare logo is all the colours of the rainbow, and we want to celebrate the brightness and happiness that St Clare brings to the lives of our community. That’s why we are asking all our Go Bright Walkers to dress in their favourite, brightest and most exciting clothing to represent the brightness of St Clare!’

The Go Bright Walk will set off at 11am with a free, family-friendly festival of stalls taking place in the Water Gardens from 10am to 3pm. The 5k route around Harlow town is both wheelchair and pushchair friendly, and all children under 16 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Advanced entry costs £12 for adults (over 16 years) and £5 for children (4-15 years) with kids under 3 going free! A family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) costs £30 in advance. On the day entry costs £15 for adults, £7 for children and £40 a family. Entry includes a pair of rainbow sweatbands and a Go Bright medal.
