23 May – 6 June 2020



***Further to Coronavirus (covid-19) we have updated this event***

On 10th February 2020 we launched our annual Star Shine Night Walk event and asked you to sign up, to help us make every moment count for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity patients and their families. We were working hard towards welcoming hundreds of you to an evening of music, fun, friendship and memories, along with the all-important walking, in support of the Hospice.

We never would have thought that just a few weeks later we would be navigating the strange days that we now find ourselves in. Star Shine Night Walk is always a special evening, as we join together to celebrate life in all its fullness and wonder, and remember those we miss. This year we were going to light up the darkness by glowing green for the Hospice on the streets of Cambridge. For lots of us, taking part in Star Shine Night Walk is a significant opportunity to remember, to celebrate, and to forge new memories. We know that it's still really important to take time to do these things, even while we're experiencing a pandemic. Sadly, it’s clear now that we won’t be able to host the event in the same way as we have before.

With the full support of our headline sponsor, The Cambridgeshire Care Home, we have made the decision not to cancel or postpone, but instead to adapt the event, so that you’ll still be able to make every step count for Arthur Rank Hospice...

2. Step 

We’re setting you the challenge to complete the 10 mile walk by accumulating a step count of 20,000 during the two weeks of 23 May – 6 June. This should be achieved in line with the Government’s latest guidelines around exercising. If you are only able to do the steps within your home and garden, you can still take part and will be surprised how quickly the steps add up - here's some inspiration! We’d normally start the walk at twilight, but you can choose your own times and go at your own pace. If you don’t have a way of electronically tracking your steps through a smart watch or mobile phone, don’t let that put you off – we are happy for you to guesstimate!

3. Share

We’d love to see your selfies and screenshots of step counts during the two weeks, so keep us and your friends updated on social media by posting regular updates - use #StarShineWalk20 so we can see you and say a virtual hello! Make sure your friends, colleagues and neighbours know to sponsor you via your JustGiving page. If you haven't got a JustGiving page set up for the event yet, just click here.

4. Celebrate!

Later in the year, we’ll host a Star Shine Celebration Evening at the Hospice. We’ll be able to thank you face to face, as well as award you with your finishers’ medal.
