Sunrise Walk

Each sunrise brings with it promise and hope for what lies ahead, so make the most of your day on Sunday 18th July by joining us for our first ever Sunrise Walk. Gather your family, friends or colleagues, embrace the new day and help The Kirkwood Support Life this summer.



We'd love you to join us on Sunday 18th July for our first ever Sunrise Walk. Set your alarms, grab your gear and step into a new day to Support Life across Kirklees

All you need to do it choose your route, get your friends, family or colleagues together and make sure you're up in time to get walking for The Kirkwood.

The sun will come up 4.58am on the day of the Sunrise Walk. You could choose to set off at the crack of dawn, make sure you're out and about as the sun climbs over the horizon or time it so you reach your favourite beauty spot to watch the sun rise on a brand new day.

It's completely up to you how far you choose to walk! We suggest a distance of 5km or 10km, but you can choose any route and distance you like!

When you sign up you will receive a commemorative Sunrise Walk T-shirt to wear during the event. And anyone who raises £100 or more will receive a limited edition I SUPPORT LIFE hoody.



Taking on a challenge at sunrise is no easy feat! Every penny of sponsorship you raise by taking part in the Sunrise Walk will make a difference to the most vulnerable people in your community.

If you'd like to get started with your fundraising, you can download our sponsorship form at the bottom of this page, or by clicking here. We've also created a handy guide to setting up your JustGiving page online, which you can download here.
