Each year since 2008, different groups of supporters have taken part in sponsored walks one weekend in May. We all walk with the same hope in mind – raising research funds to find a cure or treatment for myotubular and centronuclear myopathy.
We would love you to join us or can help you to arrange your own Hope Walk!
This is one of our most enjoyable fundraisers which you can take part in as an individual, as a small group, or something much bigger that involves all your family and friends. Corporate teams are welcome also.
If you would like to arrange a Hope Walk in your local area:
Given it’s great popularity, on Saturday 12th May 2018, we will be walking and crossing 10 of London’s iconic bridges once more. We start on London Bridge, walk 10 kilometres and finish with a picnic in Battersea Park. Read more and register yourself here.
Last year, we had a great turn out for the 10k, 10 Bridges London Hope walk and were joined by over 70 walkers including four families with myotubular and centronuclear myopathy. It was a particularly special day and the weather was perfect too.

The Brighton Hope Walk was new for 2015 and was organized by Karen Vardy in memory of her son Jack.
The route was 13.5 miles along the seafront from Brighton Pier to Worthing Pier, with a short stop in Shoreham enroute.

The Cromer Hope Walk was new for 2014, and was led by Jennie, Chris and Roy May in memory of Nathaniel. The route was from Aylsham toWroxford and back again, 18 miles along the Bure valley rail footpath.
This walk takes place along breath-taking coastal paths in the South Hams peninsula. In previous years it has covered circular walks from Bolt Head to Bolt Tail in Hope Cove, and along the Revelstoke Walk in Noss Mayo. Sometimes the walk is small in number, and on other occasions we’ve been joined by a larger group of friends and locals. Taking refreshment stops along the way to admire the sea views, it’s a perfect way to spend a morning.
The Oldham Hope Walk is a gorgeous 5 mile/8km walk around Dove Stone Reservoir, Greenfield, taking in some beautiful scenery around the area.
Our wonderful Oldham supporters have also abseiled just over 100 feet at Denham Quarry in Chorley, following the popularity of the ‘Walk Down a Tower’ and their 2014 abseil.
