May 2012 Windsor Walk


Please come and join us on the 6th Windsor Great Park Walk this year - Sunday 13th May - starting mid-morning.
Enjoy the day out and optional pic-nic lunch - bring friends, family, children, grand-children, neighbours, dogs - and get sponsored to walk to raise funds for MDS UK.

Walk at your own pace - as little or as much as you'd like.
There are options for a 6km, 10km and 16km walk.  Or just sit and enjoy the park and support the walkers.

AAT (Aplastic Anaemia Trust) is organising the day (brilliantly) - with signs, assistance, water stops, safety marshalls etc.

To cover the costs of organising the walk, the AAT is only asking for a £5 donation per adult - which covers all their hard work. Children go free.

We - the MDS UK Patient Support Group - then ask you to get sponsored to walk - and funds raised that way will come to us.

Organising such a walk is extremely time consuming - we do not have the necessary staff to deal with this.  It is therefore much easier to team up with AAT who have set up this walk 6 years ago and have very kindly invited us to participate.  Thank you to Anna and Bryoni and all the volunteers on the day.

Come as a group and meet others - and raise awareness of MDS that way too.

Registration at Blacknest Car Park is from 9.15 and there are staggered starts from 10am, so everyone should finish together in time for lunch. There will also be face painting for our younger walkers (or the young at heart!).

You can also register ahead of time (preferably) by using the form below - and let us know you are coming so we can meet and greet you.

We really need your assistance this year.  We are starting our new nationwide "Assessment for Support in MDS" Project - which will span the next 3 years.  We have secured funds for 1 year so far.  We need everyone's help to make sure we can complete this important project to the end.

To sponsor a particular walker - please use our online donation site - and specify the name of the person:
