Unite against cancer and raise vital funds for The Christie at the Walk of Hope 2020!

The Walk of Hope brings together families, friends and individuals to show their support for cancer patients. You’ll walk 10km through the beautiful grounds of Tatton Park in honour of the treatment and care provided by The Christie.

During the Walk of Hope, there will be opportunities to remember those who are no longer with us, celebrate with survivors and provide hope for those currently under the care of The Christie.

Join Team Christie today and you can help us to make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families. By taking part in this event, you'll be helping us to build The Christie at Macclesfield, a new centre designed to bring cancer care closer to home in East Cheshire.
