MK Midnight Moo is Back!
We are calling on local ladies to sign up for this year’s Willen Hospice MK Midnight Moo, which takes place on 13 July 2019.
We launched our flagship charity fundraiser this week, with the proud announcement of a brand new Half-Moo, in addition to our popular 10 mile walk. The new route is just over half the distance (6.3 miles) but promises to be just as much fun.
The Moo has become iconic in Milton Keynes, last year raising more than £120,000. Starting and finishing at intu Milton Keynes at midnight, it’s open to walkers of all levels, whether you walk on your own, in pairs or in teams.
Willen Hospice Chief Executive Peta Wilkinson said: “I was thrilled to be part of last year’s MK Midnight Moo walking alongside 1000 other ladies, all raising money to support our care. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year, and we’re so excited to be launching it for 2019.
If you would like to walk with us, you can sign up for the MK Midnight Moo for just £20. The registration fee covers the cost of the event but it is fundraising that is key to our Moo’s success.
Senior Events Fundraiser, Tracey Jago said: “We know our ladies love a theme and this year we have opted for disco! We can’t wait to see how our walkers will embrace this theme through their fundraising and outfits on the night. Our ultimate aim is to raise funds for Willen Hospice and we know the ladies of Milton Keynes can rise to the challenge.”
Steve Moore, Director of Specsavers Milton Keynes, added: “We are very lucky to be able to support local events and charities. Last year we sponsored the MK Midnight Moo and we’re very happily supporting it again this year! It’s a fun and unusual event to be involved with and we’re enjoying building on the success of our ongoing partnership. Willen Hospice provides exceptional care in our community and we are so proud to be able to sponsor them to help raise vital funds.”
Willen Hospice needs to raise £4.7 million every year, that’s £9 a minute, to continue to provide care to patients in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas. The MK Midnight Moo is a key event that helps our charity to reach that goal.
