Who will you Walk 4 Wards for?

About the Event

Back by popular demand for its 2nd year – Walk 4 Wards! Enjoy a scenic and custom-designed 5-mile walk through stunning countryside, with beautiful fields and abundant wildlife. Upon your return, you’ll be greeted with delicious refreshments at the charmingly converted Stokes Farm Barn as part of your entry.

Who will you walk for? Choose to walk in honour of a ward that has supported you or a loved one, or walk in memory of someone special, celebrating their life and legacy.

Join us with friends, family, colleagues, and even your furry four-legged companions – dogs are welcome! For our younger walkers, we have a scavenger hunt to keep them entertained along the way. Please note, you must be able to complete the walk within 3.5 hours – on average it takes 2-2.5 hours.

Free parking is available onsite, along with toilets to use before you head out. Please note that there are no additional restrooms or water stops along the route, so be sure to bring snacks and a bottle of water to stay hydrated.

By fundraising for FHC at Walk 4 Wards, we can care for more patients like Aaron …

“Frimley Park has been a big part of our lives since early pregnancy with my son, Aaron. Throughout the first few year’s of his life, Aaron endured X-rays, MRI’s and blood tests to find out why he couldn’t crawl, walk or talk. During this investigation, Aaron was also diagnosed with Epilepsy. In January 2023 we finally received the news that Aaron in fact has a very rare genetic disorder called KBG Syndrome (there are currently only 400 cases around the world). If it wasn’t for Dr Lee’s dedication and unwillingness to give up on Aaron, I feel this diagnosis could have taken many more years. Aaron has regular check-ups concerning his heart, sight and hearing – all of which are areas of concern for people living with KBG. We are so, so grateful for Dr Lee leaving no stone unturned and feel Aaron is in safe hands under his care. I am so pleased to have raised this money for Frimley Health Charity. Thank you Frimley Park Hospital and Dr Lee!!” ~ Laura (Aaron’s Mum)
