TWO of Sheffield’s best known companies are giving their support to one of the city’s biggest and most popular annual fundraising events.
Pricecheck and Gripple are the joint headline sponsors of our Hospice Night Strider 2018.
Night Strider is the annual nocturnal half marathon and 10k walking challenge that aims to raise more than £130,000 towards our patient care.
Last year’s event saw a thousand fully illuminated St Luke’s supporters take to the streets as darkness fell on the city on an October evening.
And already entries are coming in for Night Strider 2018, which makes its return for a fourth year on October 6 – and promises to be the most spectacular Night Strider yet!
“We are delighted that two such well-known companies are giving us their support as we set out on our fourth Night Strider,” said our Corporate Fundraising Manager Joasia Lesniak.
“Both Pricecheck and Gripple are long-standing friends of St Luke’s and their continued support is something we value enormously.”
Starting out from Tudor Square in Sheffield city centre as darkness falls, the walk takes in some of Sheffield’s finest locations as it heads out towards Ecclesall and then back to the Tudor Square finish line.
With no running involved, there’s plenty of time to take in the city’s best known views by moonlight as walkers embark on their nocturnal challenge.
Night Strider is open to everybody over the age of 10 - though participants aged 10 to 17 must be registered and accompanied by another participant aged 18 or over - and is suitable for all ages and abilities.
Wheelchair users are encouraged to take part in Night Strider but due to the nature of the route and distance it is advisable they should source suitable assistance throughout the challenge.
There is an Early Bird discount offer of £20 person available until June 30. After that the individual entry fee is £25 - to sign up simply visit Night Strider
