Walkers will be returning from the 60km route throughout the evening and into the night. These walkers will have put in a huge effort and will need a massive amount of encouragement and support as they cross the line, so we welcome all who wish to stay and support the walkers over the finish line.

Why not get your family and friends to come and meet you and cheer you over the finish line? They can also then drive you home as we recommend that you don’t drive a long distance after completing this challenge.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
