Get striding this October to support St Luke’s

Jump to sign-up form Downloadable resources

Take part in our biggest and most popular fundraising event of the year and do your distance, time and location your way – this October.

For the past six years, Night Strider has seen hundreds of people gather together for one of Sheffield’s most popular walking events, in support of our care.

The challenge

As this year's event is virtual, it’s free to register to take part and walk, run or cycle your 10k or half marathon distance between Friday 1 October and Sunday 31 October.  

After registering, we’ll send you a Night Strider t-shirt and then it’s over to you to accessorise with some fun, neon glow elements to give your challenge that authentic Night Strider feel! We have lots of downloadable resources to inspire and support our striders, which can be found here on our website.

Track your progress using our Night Strider virtual mapping platform and receive a medal once the challenge is complete to show off your achievement to friends and family.

How this helps

The pandemic has had a massive impact on our income which is why it’s more important than ever to get as many people taking part and fundraising in this year’s Night Strider as we can. Money raised by our Night Striders will help support our patient care costs as well as our other services such as Bereavement support which has been invaluable to lots of loved ones left behind, in incredibly difficult circumstances during the pandemic. 

Making a huge difference, one stride at a time!

£34 raised could contribute towards a patient’s meals for a week on our In Patient Centre

raised could contribute towards the care of two of our inpatients for one hour

 raised could contribute towards a family who has recently lost a loved one receiving two hours of our specialised bereavement support

£227 raised could contribute towards a visit by our community nurses delivering vital care and pain relief for patients when needed, in the comfort of their own homes
