Rainbows Walk of Life 2013

In 2012, hundreds of people took part in our 5 and 15 mile walks around the countryside and the City of Leicester from Leicestershire County Cricket Club. Many were dressed as superheroes to help celebrate our hero theme during Children’s Hospice Week.

This year we will once again be having a superhero theme and will be joined by IncrediBow Bear – of course dressing up is optional however just take a look at our video below to see the amount of fun had by our previous walkers.
