Other highlights will be the Isle of Wight Challenge with Action Challenge, an event to walk, jog or run on the Island’s stunning 105 kilometre coastal footpath.
As the event grew it became clear the event had to be managed by a larger group, so a committee was formed from within the hospice.
Other companies have later come on to support the event such as Red Funnel and Southern Vectis who now provide free travel for walkers.
All the Island walks are clearly signposts and easy to follow and provide one of the best way to enjoy some of the Isle of Wight most spectacular views and scenery.
For those trying the main round the Island coastal walk there are a number of great rest stops from B&B to hotels along the route providing an overnight rest before continuing on as well as some great pubs and restaurants along the way to keep you fuelled on your walk.
