Thank you to everyone who took part in the inaugural Great Hospital Hike - a sponsored walk uniting staff, patients, family, friends and neighbours across our communities in raising over £140,000 for our hospitals!
On 18 September 2021, over 400 supporters joined us on a hike to remember as we walked the leafy 17 mile route from King’s College Hospital in Denmark Hill to the Princess Royal University Hospital in Bromley.
It was a beautiful day all round - the sun shone brightly as hikers smiled, laughed and swapped stories as they went the extra mile for King's.
Starting in Ruskin Park, the inaugural hike chartered a spectacular 17-mile course following the famous Green Chain Walk through southeast London’s prettiest parks and wildest woods.
Joining in the for the home stretch, participants in the 3-mile Little Hospital Hike followed scenic off-road footpaths and forest trails before crossing the finish line at Tugmutton Common.
Amongst the hikers were clinicians like Rose, who is helping to improve the lives of patients at the PRUH, patients like Ronni, who received treatment for breast cancer, and grateful loved ones like Daniel, who wants to say thank you to the team that saved his newborn daughter's life.
And together, they raised over £140,000 for our hospitals.
Congratulations and WELL DONE to everyone who took part. And a huge thank you to our supporters and event volunteers for helping to make the day such a roaring success.
We look forward to doing it all again in 2022!
