Celebrating your loved ones

Walk to Remember events are an opportunity to remember someone special, so join your family, friends and celebrate the life of someone close to you.

Everyone chooses to remember a loved one in their own way, from dressing up to writing poems. But if you're stuck for ideas, here are a few to get you started. 

A token of your love

A nice way to remember someone close is to bring along a token of that person. Perhaps that's Dad's favourite hat, Grandma's pearl necklace, a friend's football shirt or even the family dog!

T-shirt and placards

In your Walk to Remember welcome pack you will receive a free Marie Curie T-shirt and placards to pin to it. Be as creative as you like; draw a picture, write a poem, or keep it simple and just write the name of the person you are remembering. 

Memory lanterns

Our memory lanterns have become very popular at Walk to Remember events throughout the years. Upon your arrival, purchase a lantern by making a small donation to Marie Curie, on it write your personal message to a loved one and then enjoy the touching sight of all the glowing lanterns when you return from the walk.

Twilight picnic and fire display

All our Walk to Remember events end in a late night picnic and many of them include a celebratory fireworks or fire displays. Sit down with your friends and family and enjoy the colourful spectacle as we play this year's dedicated in memory soundtrack.

Share your evening on social media

Perhaps you're champion of the group-selfie? Or maybe your style is capturing the diverse wildlife? Spread your evenings experience by sharing your Walk to Remember pictures on our Facebook   and Twitter   pages using #WalktoRemember  .
