From research to recovery...
From nurses to neurosurgeons...
From patients to staff...
From King's to the PRUH...
Let's take a hike!
On 28 March 2020, get your boots on for the inaugural Great Hospital Hike, a scenic trail from King’s College Hospital in Denmark Hill to the Princess Royal University Hospital in Bromley.
Whether you take on the full 17 mile hike, or join us for the final 3 mile stretch, every step you take through the beautiful green belt of South East London will help raise vital funds to support life-changing care at our hospitals.
About the Great Hospital Hike
King's provides specialist and local health services to a population of over one million people in South-East London and Kent. We are delighted to launch this landmark opportunity for patients, staff, supporters, families and friends to band together and walk the distance between two of our sites - King's College Hospital in Denmark Hill to the Princess Royal in Bromley.
Whatever your connection to King's, show your support for the specific ward or department that is meaningful to you, or raise money for the Charity's general fund to support projects that push boundaries, transform clinical services, and improve the working environment across the Trust.
There are two distances to choose from -
- Great Hospital Hike – a spectacular 17 mile trail following the Green Chain, which showcases some of South East London’s prettiest parks and open spaces including the Horniman Museum Gardens, Dulwich Woods, Sydenham Wells Park, Beckenham Palace Mansion, and Stumphill Wood.
- Little Hospital Hike – a shorter, 3 mile, family friendly route combining off-road footpaths and forest trails.
Whichever distance you choose, you can look forward to receiving loads of cheerful encouragement from supporters along the way, and the warmest of welcomes when you cross the finish line at the PRUH.
And whether you're walking as an individual or as a team, rest assured you'll be walking with friends. (Did we mention that dogs are welcome too?!)
