The Lisa Lowe Walk
Entry has now closed. Thank you
The Lisa Lowe Appeal Walk was established for Manx Cancer Help in 1996 when Lisa Lowe set about raising as much money as she could to highlight the importance of the services they provide. Lisa organised many events while she was ill, raising more than £80,000. Lisa sadly died in November 1997 but remains a source of inspiration and motivation for the charity and its fundraisers, with the charity’s premises in Cronkbourne named after her.
Manx Cancer Help’s Gareth Nicholson said: ‘What a fantastic event the walk has turned out to be over the last few years, a challenging route that all the participants have both enjoyed and most importantly, have raised a significant amount of money for the vital services that we provide.
‘Lisa was a really brave person and her contribution to Manx Cancer Help wasn’t just her impressive fundraising but she has left a legacy which carries on; we hope that Lisa would be proud of the service that we provide today’.
The course, which runs along the Millennium Way from Sky Hill to Castletown, covers an impressive 28 miles of challenging terrain.
Luckily over the last two years we have been blessed with stunning weather, allowing the participants to be in high spirits as they have enjoyed the glorious views, with many having never attempted the route before.
If you feel that walking the whole route could be too daunting, then why not sign up for the ten mile walk from Crosby or band together a team of four to take on the mix of road and track terrain.
Manx Cancer Help provides specialist psychological and emotional support to anyone whose life has been affected by a cancer diagnosis. Being completely self-funded, the funds raised at the walk are essential to ensure the charity can continue providing the vital help and support to cancer sufferers in the community.
