Join our 25th Anniversary sponsored Walk for Life and take in the beautiful Essex countryside whilst raising vital funds for people affected by life-limiting illnesses. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along one of two scenic routes:

12km from Paper Mill Lock to Chelmsford
24km from Heybridge Basin to Chelmsford

As the two routes are not circular, coaches will be available to take you from our start point at e2v in Chelmsford to the start of your chosen route. Please note, seats must be booked in advance.

For more information, please contact the events team on 01245 457355 or email

25 years of Walk for Life

Walk for Life was launched as the Nurses’ Walk in 1992 with the Farleigh nurses walking between Farleigh Hospice in Maldon to the old Farleigh Hospice in New London Road.

Over the past 25 years the event has raised over £1,000,000 in vital funds for patients and families across mid Essex.

This year will see many of our clinical team celebrate this anniversary event by putting their best foot forward to walk the route from Heybridge Basin to e2v in Chelmsford.
