Hospital heroes will walk four miles on 26 June to raise funds for R Charity’s £10million Appeal

HEROES from across Merseyside are set to join forces in a bid to raise vital funds for the new Royal.

Hundreds of caped crusaders will descend on Liverpool's iconic waterfront on Sunday, 26 June 2016 to take part in R Charity's first Hospital Heroes Walk.

The 4-mile walk from the Pier Head to Otterspool will raise funds to provide local patients in the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital with the very best in equipment for treatment and comfort during their stay.

One true hospital hero taking part in the walk is Maria Somaroo.

Hospital hero Maria will take part in the first ever R Charity Hospital Hero Walk

Maria, a 60 year old nurse practitioner at the Royal, is walking the 4 miles along Liverpool's waterfront both as a member of staff and a patient. In 2011, Maria had a brief thyroid cancer scare, which required operation and treatment. Despite having to deal with the emotional factors of a potential cancer diagnosis, she heroically carried on working, not missing a day of work and taking annual leave in order to recover from surgery. She said:- "I've been a member of staff at the Royal for 33 years; I've also spent time as a patient and have seen 1st hand the amazing work our staff do on a daily basis. There are so many people connected to the hospital who are heroes in their own special way. I want take part in the walk to say a huge thank you to my consultant Ms Waghorn and the staff on 9Y who went the extra mile to help me through a difficult period. My daughters will join me along on the walk and I'll be inviting other people who mean a lot to me to take part. I cannot wait to celebrate the great work our hospital does and raise money for R Charity."

Aimee Clare, senior community fundraiser for R Charity said:- "Our Hospital Heroes Walk will be a great way to celebrate some of the heroes working in our hospital like Maria, and other heroes in our hospital battling their own health conditions. There is a hero in everybody. Sign up today and become a hero for R Charity and help provide the best care around to the people of Merseyside."

R Charity's Hospital Hero Walk costs just £5 and under 10's walk free!  Heroes taking part in the walk, no matter how big or small, will receive their very own superhero cape to wear and take home with them.
