Hope Walk Weekend


Walk With Us In May

Hope-WalkEach year since 2008, different groups of supporters have taken part in sponsored Myotubular Trust ‘Hope Walks’. We all walk with the same hope in mind – raising research funds to find a cure or treatment for myotubular and centronuclear myopathy.

In 2019, we would love you to join us – or can help you to arrange your own Hope Walk!

 

A Sponsored 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:

  • we can help you plan it
  • we can provide bespoke registration forms and promotional materials 
  • we can provide advice to help you keep everyone safe, making it as comfortable and as fun as possible
  • we can provide t-shirts for you and your group (subject to availability)

Devon Coastal Hope Walk

 

 

In 2019 we are planning our Devon Hope Walk, which circles around the pretty village of Noss Mayo. The walk takes place on Saturday 7th September, starting at 1.30pm.  The route is 10K in total, with some rugged rural tracks and hills (with some parts suitable for wheelchairs and buggies).  The scenery along this stretch is really stunning, as you will be taking in the coastal views towards Bantham, Hope Cove, Burgh Island, Plymouth Sound and the Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers Estuary. The walk will finish at the quaint village pub ‘The Ship’ in Noss Mayo which is situated on the water.  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.

London Hope Walk - Annual Flagship Event

 

 

 

Our 2019 10k, 10 bridges Hope Walk was pure joy from beginning to end and thankfully the rather damp and chilly weather forecast proved to be wrong.

We were joined by 68 walkers, 9 families and 4 dogs and, as ever, it was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with our old friends and to meet some new ones too.  You can read more about the London Hope Walk 2019 here.
