About the event
Save the date for the last Marc's walk ... East meets West!
East meets West! Save the date for Willy’s last walk. There will be a dual start for this walk. East will start from St Catherine and West from Grosnez. Both will meet in St John and carry on through waterworks valley, finishing at the waterfront.
Registration will open in April.
Marc’s Walk was created in 2011 and since then has raised approx £110,000 for local children’s charities, including Teenage Cancer Trust and CLIC Sargent Cancer Care for Children (Jersey). The Walk is in memory of Marc Nieuwburg, who died of bone cancer in 2006 at the age of 19.
The Walk is organised by Marc’s father, Willy. He was inspired to organise one for us when he heard about our new plans. Willy said, ‘I read that Jersey Hospice Care was creating a new facility offering end of life care for local children. Some of you may remember that the original idea for Marc’s Walk was to raise money for a specialist cancer unit for teenagers in Southampton’s General Hospital. Well this is similar and inspires me the same way, so I have decided I will create a walk to raise money for Jersey Hospice Care’s new children’s unit.’
