Get ready to make a difference and Glow like never before!
Glow mental health charity walk is a unique and vibrant 20km night walk through the cities of London and Birmingham, and it is open to all abilities.
You can take part solo or as a team, simply bring along some lights and glowsticks and unite with others who want to help raise vital funds for people affected by mental ill health.
At the end of the circular route, there will be a medal waiting for you, as well as fantastic memories and a well-deserved feeling of achievement that will last a lifetime.

I liked the idea of walking in the evening with a few glowing accessories on me.. of walking through London and discovering new routes which allowed me to see many iconic places.. of testing my resilience to see if I could walk 20K (something I’ve never done).. of being part of a crowd who have compassion and understanding of mental health issues. Kiran, GLOW participant 2022
I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise. Louise Greenwood, Lloyds Banking Group
I was totally elated when I crossed the line and so glad I’d given it a go! Helen Taylor
Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps. Richard Gray
