Early morning walkers fundraising for Windsor's hospice will be able to remember loved ones by leaving special messages on trees they pass
The Walk to Remember in aid of Thames Hospicecare takes place in Windsor Great Park on Saturday, June 15 starting at 7am.
The route will be lined with 'memory trees' enabling walkers to write or post messages dedicating their walk to a relation, friend or colleague.
Money will go towards the maintenance of Windsor's 24 hour hospice in Hatch Lane and its sister day centre at Heatherwood Hospital, Ascot.
Hayley Kyle from Cox Green, Maidenhead will be remembering her grandfather Peter Crane when she posts her message.
She said: "I took part in last year's Walk to Remember because I felt I wanted to try to repay the incredible support that Thames Hospicecare provided to me and my family at a time when we needed it most, when we were losing my granddad to cancer.
"Last year I smashed my target and was able to raise £620. This year I'm back to try it all again."
Walkers have the choice of a 6.5 or 13 mile route. They will get a breakfast snack and personalised scroll.
There is a £15 registration fee per walker. Visiting www.thameshospicecare.org.uk or call 01753 848963 for details.
