Hi there!

Thank you for your interest in our fourth ever purple walk!

Each year since Peter passed we have committed to walking 21 kilometers representing the 21 epilepsy related deaths each week in the UK.

This event is a great opportunity to get together to chat, laugh, meet new people, get out into mother nature, improve physical and mental well being and have fun.

Most importantly it is a chance to raise much needed awareness around epilepsy and SUDEP. It would also be greatly appreciated if anyone would like to raise sponsorship funds for the Peter Doody Foundation or simply donate direct to our just giving page below (or use our donate tab). If you would like a paper sponsorship form posting/emailing, please get in touch.

All donations go directly to improving epilepsy care which significantly lacks funding compared with other neurological and long term health conditions.

We will be meeting by the steps at Haworth Church (top of the cobbles), departing at 9am, returning back from Hebden Bridge by bus for well deserved refreshments. This is a stunning landscape route across the moors of Bronte land, through woods and alongside streams.

Please drop us a line by text, email, messenger if you can to give us ideas of numbers joining us.

We really look forward to seeing you there and P.S. It also happens to be our beautiful son Peter’s birthday.

So get your purple on, have fun, make a difference!
