What is HOPEWALK?
HOPEWALK is a month of walks taking place across the UK in October, organised by you with help from us.
Your walk can be around your park, along your favourite countryside trail, or even just around the block and you can have as many or as few people join as you like. Some people choose to walk in memory of a loved one, others choose to walk to fundraise and raise awareness. You can choose to use your HOPEWALK to raise funds, but you don’t have to – our aim is to get the conversation around suicide started, in order to #SmashTheStigma.
What do I do?
We want you to host a walk in your local area. Let us know if you’d like to be one of our wonderful HOPEWALK Hosts! There is a small cost for registration – this year it is £10. Only Hosts need to pay, and you’ll receive a special box from us packed full of goodies to help you make the most of your walk. This is includes a t shirt, a pen, a wristband, a water bottle and PAPYRUS literature, along with HOPEWALK posters to help advertise your walk. You will also receive a HOPEWALK Host information pack which is full of useful info to help you host the best walk possible!

Do I have to walk in October?
Most people choose to have their walk take place in October to celebrate World Mental Health Day, but you are more than welcome to walk at another time during the year.
I’d like to walk but don’t think I could organise my own.
Many Hosts choose to make their walk public and have lots of people join from their local area. Just let us know where you are in the country and we’ll see if there is a walk you can join.
