Sheffield’s golden girl, Jessica Ennis-Hill is set to support her local cancer hospital this October as she joins Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity’s annual sponsored woodland walk.
London 2012 Olympic Heptathlon Champion, Jessica, is encouraging people of all ages to help her ‘Light the Night’ at the cancer charity’s magical walk through Ecclesall Woods on the 3rd October to raise essential funds for Weston Park Hospital.
Now into its fourth year, the popular event, which Jessica attended back in 2013, invites entrants to enjoy a 4.5k walk through the local beauty spot alongside friends and family.
New for 2015, the cancer charity is inviting walkers to embrace the wild-west neon theme and step out in their neon alongside other supporters for one vital cause.
Charity Patron, Jessica will be officially starting the walk on the evening of the 3rd October and urging those who sign up to raise as much sponsorship as possible to enable the charity to continue funding life-changing projects at Weston Park Hospital.
Weston Park Hospital is one of only a handful of specialist cancer hospitals in England and treats patients from all over SouthYorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire.
The charity needs to raise over £1.8 million this year to fund a wide range of projects that will keep Weston Park Hospital at the forefront of cancer treatment
