Walk Ten is Marie Curie’s largest walking fundraising event, open to people of all ages and abilities. Walk Ten 2014 took place at 19 stunning locations; each 10k walk was celebrated into dusk with music and entertainment. This summer Walk Ten is celebrating its fifth anniversary. Taking place at 19 stunning locations across the UK, each 10km evening walk takes celebrations into dusk with music and entertainment.
The walks take place between July and September. The money raised helps support Marie Curie. Walkers celebrate the completion of their 10k walking achievement with a picnic while they soak up the festival-like atmosphere. The 10pm fireworks (or fire-show where fireworks aren’t allowed) coincide with the time many Marie Curie Nurses start their nightshift, caring for people with terminal illnesses in their own homes. There is also a speech from a Marie Curie Nurse followed by a minute silence just before the fireworks.
Marie Curie’s aim was to create a video to show that this is an evening 10k walk with a difference, capturing the unique atmosphere of the evening. The video needed to capture the fun, warmth, group spirit and memories being celebrated.
