Riverside Stomp
 This year Riverside Stomp will be taking place on 30th September 2017. 
Get those walking boots on for your local children’s and young adults' hospice.  All monies raised from this event will help local families and babies like Martha, who was born in a critical condition and died at five-days-old in 2015. Her parents, Sophie and Ed, are asking walkers from across the region to join them on 30 September to take part in the annual Riverside Stomp.


Riverside Stomp is a beautiful and picturesque walking challenge set along the Thames Path. Choose to take on the big 22 mile challenge and start from Wallingford, or take the shorter route of 9 miles from Abingdon; choose the challenge that suits you! The route is beautiful, the terrain gently undulating, we will be there to support you and celebrate at the end, so get those walking boots on and join us on the 30th September!

Why should you put on your walking shoes for Helen & Douglas House?

Your participation in the Riverside Stomp is going to make a real difference to us - we care for terminally ill children, young adults and their families through exceptional hospice care. It costs over £5 million a year to run the two hospice houses and provide our outreach nursing service, we cannot do this without your help!


We provide medical, emotional and practical support helping families deal with the implications of living with a child who will die prematurely, so they can make the most of their time together.


Join in the Riverside Stomp and make a difference!
