forget me not walk on page

Join Grief Encounter’s first ever forget-me-not walk and join hundreds of people up and down the country.

  • Walk on your own, with your household/bubble or a friend and don’t forget to include the dog!
  • Choose your route and distance, perhaps a collective 26 mile marathon or 26 laps of your local park
  • Each person/dog that registers (£5 per person/dog) will receive a baseball cap/doggy bandana in their event pack
  • Raise funds in memory of your loved one, by creating a forget-me-not walk Justgiving page – simply click the link below
  • You could also download a sponsorship form as an alternative way to fundraise

There is no minimum fundraising target. For every £26 you raise, you could fund the cost of a grieftalk helpline session, providing essential emotional support for a grieving child or young person, following the death of a parent.

Please join us by registering today and raise as much as you can for Grief Encounter.

Thank you.

Finally, please remember to always follow Government guidelines and maintain a safe social distance from members of the general public whilst out walking.
