 Maggie’s are delighted to announce that the London Night Hike will take place on Friday 21 September 2012. In it’s eighth year, the London Night Hike is a 10 or 20 mile walk through the capital city. Coinciding with the festival run by Maggie’s partners Open House London, this nocturnal challenge gives you the chance to visit a number of landmark buildings and iconic structures including The EDF Energy London Eye, Roca London Gallery and City Hall.

With food and entertainment at each of our featured buildings Maggie’s will make sure you have a fabulous Friday night and are looked after every step of the way. Beginning at 7.30pm, the Night Hike is a fun challenge with a great atmosphere, and an ideal opportunity to fundraise with family and friends.
 
Every penny you raise will go towards changing the lives of people affected by cancer. By signing up for the London Night Hike you will be supporting our aim to have 15 Maggie’s centres across the UK by 2014, extending our network of emotional and practical support to all those who need it.
 
Maggie’s is an organisation that creates places providing the emotional, practical and social support that people with cancer need. The Centres combine striking buildings, calming spaces, professional experts offering professional support, and the ability to talk and share experiences with a community of people who have been through similar experiences. Designed by industry-leading architects, Maggie’s Centres are warm, friendly and informal places full of light and open space with a big kitchen at their heart. They provide a peaceful space to absorb the information you’re inevitably bombarded with and help to relieve the stress of having cancer.
 
Registration costs £35 per person for those taking part in the 10 mile event, and £40 per person for 20 mile Night Hikers. But if you decide to walk in a team of 4 or more you make a saving of £5 per person.
 
The minimum fundraising target for 2012 is just £185 per person for 10 mile hikers, and £285 per person for the 20 mile hikers. Maggie’s will provide you with a fundraising support pack and regular newsletters with lots of ideas to help you reach or even smash your fundraising target!
