Leicester’s biggest girls night out – LOROS Twilight Walk
There is one night a year which unites sisters, mothers, daughters, friends, partners and colleagues across the county. This night is known by many as the LOROS Twilight Walk - an annual 10km Sponsored Walk when ladies take over the King Power Stadium and take to the streets of Leicester.
The circuit is an amazing loop which includes some of Leicester City hot spots. Walkers will definitely enjoy the mysterious New Walk, illuminated by the lanterns, nooks and crannies in the oldest part of the city as well as the pink and violet lights of the modern building of the Curve Theatre.
My dad, Mick, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in October 2011. He very gradually lost the use of both legs and became wheelchair bound. He was under the care of a wonderful consultant at LOROS, Dr Luke Feathers, who often went above and beyond his duty to do all he could for not only my dad but our family as well. Through LOROS my dad received many services including hypnotherapy and acupuncture to try and ease his suffering. He also spent 5 days in LOROS and the staff there did everything they could to make him as comfortable as possible. Sadly, on 27th November 2013 my lovely dad passed away. My family and friends are taking part in the Twilight Walk as a team to raise money to give something back to LOROS so other families can receive the care, attention and services that our family did at a very difficult time.
We look forward to seeing all the ladies creative ideas in this year’s fancy dress! The theme “999 Emergency” calls for Doctors, Nurses, Firegirls, Policewomen and many more emergency service themed outfits. Merchandise for this event is available on the event’s registration website. To see more details about the event, the course map and to register please visit www.thetwilightwalk.co.uk.

This year is sure to be the BIGGEST GIRLS NIGHT OUT Leicester has ever seen and the BIGGEST Twilight Walk yet! We will do this together!
