Heart Breakfast radio’s Daniel Fox will be leaving behind the dawn chorus to burn the midnight oil when he steps out with his team of Foxy Ladies at the Hospice of St Francis Midnight Walk on Saturday.
Already sporting his Midnight Walk T-shirt and searching for some neon legwarmers, Daniel is inviting any Foxy Ladies (and gents), to join him as he takes to the streets of Hemel Hempstead to support the hospice that cares for his friend, Emma Young.
Emma, a single mother of three from Hemel who is living with terminal cancer, receives care and support for herself and children at the hospice’s outpatient Spring Centre.
Inspired by Emma, Daniel is doing all he can for the hospice, and has already lost pounds in its Biggest Loser weight loss fundraiser in conjunction with Sportspace earlier this year.
Daniel said: “Emma’s a great lady and we’ve built up such a close rapport.
“I want to do all I can to help her and the hospice who’ve given her so much.
“I’ve supported the Midnight Walk before but never made it round the course.
“With Emma at my side, I’m determined to make it to the finish line.
“It’s going to be a blast dressing up in neon, getting splattered by florescent bubbles and glowing in neon pods, so come and join me for a right neon knees-up with the Foxy Ladies team.
“Everyone is welcome.”
Sponsorship raised from the Midnight Walk, which starts at 9pm at Hemel Hempstead School, will enable the hospice to help more people like Emma facing life-limiting illness.
You can sign up for the five or 10-mile walk under Team Foxy Ladies at www.stfrancis.org.uk/midnightwalk by Tuesday, June 21, or on the night from 8.45pm.
