Dust off your walking boots and take part in our fabulous annual Walk for Life. 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.

This event is generously supported by M&G Investments.

This event has no minimum sponsorship. However if all our walkers could raise just £40 each we would be able to raise an incredible £50,000.

Setting up a Just Giving page is easy and quick to do. You can simply share your fundraising page via social media and email, to encourage your friends and family to support you in raising vital funds for the Hospice.

Everyday we need to raise £16,039 to provide our vital services across mid Essex.
