Glow for Myton is back – and it’s bigger and better than ever before.
To mark The Myton Hospices’ 40th birthday, we are going all out to offer our amazing supporters the most fabulous night of fun and fundraising.
On the night of Saturday, April 2, Coventry City Centre will come alive with colour as hundreds of fundraisers, dressed head-to-toe in neon, will step up for the cause and walk, jog, dance or run their way around the 5k route.
We promised bigger and better – and that is exactly what participants will get every step of the way – with three awesome Glow Zones, including the return of the bubble and foam tunnels, a Zumba warm-up courtesy, once more, of Matt Print and the ever-amazing paint throw just ahead of the event start.
A top DJ will also be on-hand to add some musical marvel to proceedings and the entire event will have a retro 80s theme in recognition of the decade Myton first opened its doors to care for people living with terminal illnesses, and their families, across Coventry and Warwickshire.
We want to raise £40,000 in sponsorship to mark our 40th birthday – money which will help ensure Myton can continue to provide its services, free of charge, to our patients and their families when they need us most.
So what do you get for your money?
As well as a great night out in the city, everyone who signs up will get a drawstring bag, Glow for Myton T-shirt, glow sticks and powder paint for the colour throw - and the knowledge you are helping your local charity to continue its vital work in Coventry and Warwickshire!
Starting at University Square, you will set off through the city at 9pm and party your way around the route. Once you return to University Square you can join the after-glow party and dance into the night!
Don’t worry about how quickly you make it around the route as it isn’t a timed event – but if you want to set yourselves a target we are more than happy for you to challenge yourself. This event is one everyone can get involved with; the route is wheelchair friendly, so everyone can soak up the party atmosphere, and it’s all for fun!
Whether you take part in memory of a loved one or just to support Myton, people pledging to raise certain levels of money will also become our Myton Glow Getters and receive additional goodies as listed below:
If you raise £100, you will receive a special Glow Getter T-shirt, some additional Glow merchandise, and start at the front of the pack.
If you raise £250, you will receive all of the above, plus a Myton Water Bottle.
If you raise £500, you will receive all of the above, plus a fabulous Grey Myton Hoodie.
