For the second year running three of the nursing sisters of St Luke’s Hospice led by Yvonne Jackman will walk 200kms around the Cape Peninsula to raise awareness and much needed funds for St Luke’s. Walking about 28kms a day for 7 days they hope to raise R500,000 through sponsorship and donations to help care for nearly 1000 patients.

Starting at St Luke’s Hospice in Kennilworth on Sunday 7 October, they will walk to Cape Town and then on to Table View. After passing through Athlone and Mitchell’s Plain they will meet local volunteers and Hospice staff at the Fish Hoek Hospice Shop on Recreation Rd on the afternoon of Thursday 11 October. Their route takes them through Scarborough, Kommetjie and Noordhoek before finishing at The Lookout Deck in Hout Bay on International Hospice Day, Saturday 13 October.

Along the way they will visit 10 community hospices where fund raising functions are being organised. See below.
