25 June 2022

Families and friends who took part in the Twins Trust Walk 10K for TTTS raised around £14,500 for important medical research into Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome.

The beautiful landscape of Virginia Water provided the perfect backdrop for the fundraiser on 25 June 2022 as participants made their way around the route to the finish line.

Around 40 families completed the walk at Virginia Water in Surrey, while many others signed up for their own virtual walk at a location of their choice. The event was sponsored by Irwin Mitchell, Bluelight CRM and Cilix. Some of our families from our bereavement group were walking in memory of their twins or triplets that have died.

Those who signed up for the virtual option chose their very own route and had the option to walk, run, hop or skip to complete the distance.

Lucie Wigley, Events and Community Fundraising Senior Co-ordinator for Twins Trust, said: “We were so pleased to welcome everyone to Virginia Water for the walk and grateful to those who completed their route virtually across the country. It was great to see everyone coming together all with one goal, to help raise vital funds for medical research."

Thanks to everyone who took part – your support makes a real difference to our families.

It was a poignant day of remembrance for Sue and Ian Madel, who took part in memory of their twin daughters. Read their story here.

Speaking on the day, Judi Linney, founder and president of Twins Trust, said: “I am so glad to be here today for the walk. It’s lovely to see all the families here and also all the staff who have worked so hard. Thank you for supporting Twins Trust.”
