Join Shooting Star Children’s Hospices on their moon-vellous missions this spring!

LOCAL children’s hospice charity, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices are getting ready for launch, as their out-of-this-world space adventure continues in 2023.

Now in its 3rd year, the Shooting Star Space Race sees budding space cadets help the charity power their virtual rocket through space, whilst raising money to help support children with life-limiting conditions, and their families, living across Surrey and west London.

This year, the challenge is to get their rocket home! Whether you choose to join one of their special events taking place this February and March or you take on your own supersonic challenge, by signing up and fundraising you can create truly cosmic moments for children and families facing the toughest of times.

Join Shooting Star Children's Hospices on their moon-vellous missions this spring!

The first event of this year’s mission is a fully accessible 2.5km (or 5km) walk around the beautiful gardens of Painshill, which will be transformed into an intergalactic planet trail. With space-themed fancy dress fully encouraged, the event, taking place on Sunday 26 February, will have sensory activities and games throughout the route and with more than 20% off standard ticket prices it’s a perfect opportunity for the whole family to come together and have a supersonic experience. Four-legged friends are welcome, and prizes will be available for the best-dressed alien, planet, family and of course dog!

In March, you can truly reach for the stars with a challenge that is the closest thing to walking on the moon. On Saturday 11 March, take on the twilight walk over the O2 Arena. This unique 90-minute O2 roof walk experience will see you make an unforgettable journey across the iconic roof, with stars twinkling above, the capital’s lights shining around you and a spectacular multi-coloured light experience showing you the way! Spaces are very limited so make sure you don’t miss out on this lunar event.

Or you could run, walk or cycle star-shaped Strava routes, star jump your way through March or take on a star-themed bake to earn your superstar status with an at-home challenge. Whatever you choose, by joining the Shooting Star Space Race team, you’ll be helping to ensure Shooting Star Children’s Hospices can continue to provide a lifeline to local families.
