On Saturday February 11th 2012, Wigan Athletic travel the short distance to Horwich to face Premier League rivals and near neighbours Bolton Wanderers. On the morning of the 11th Feb, prior to the game, there will be a large number of people walking from the DW Stadium in Wigan to the Reebok Stadium in Horwich, to raise awareness of Neuroblastoma and raise funds for the Emma Hoolin Appeal.
This is the walk4emma.
Emma Hoolin is a 5 year old Wigan girl, who was diagnosed with the childhood cancer neuroblastoma in February 2011, she is currently in the United States of America receiving treatment to give her the best possible chance of making a complete recovery, for more information on this please visit www.emmaholin.co.uk, the cost of Emma`s treatment is quite high, so far £310,000 has been raised, but following a conversation with a close family member this week, I have been informed that the cost will rise to at least £350,000 and could actually go even higher, depending on how Emma responds.
To help raise funds there will be a sponsored walk from Wigan to Horwich, prior to the Bolton v Latics game on Saturday 11th February, this is just five weeks away. This event will be big, brash and fun, it will certainly raise awareness, hopefully helping Emma to achieve her monetary target, to help the event run as smoothly as possible could you please register your intentions to join us at email@example.com as soon as possible. Once your details have been received you will be emailed a full pack, route card, brochure and sponsorship forms.
There is a justgiving page set up for our proceeds to be paid into: https://www.justgiving.com/walk4emma/new, this links directly into the Emma Hoolin Appeal and keeps a track of how much money the walk4emma will make.
Please, please, please support this event and join us on the walk, whether you are a Latics fan, a Bolton fan or just willing to participate and raise some much needed funds and awareness for this worthy cause.

We will be meeting from 10 am on the morning of the 11th February at the front of the DW Stadium and then setting off at 10:30am prompt. Stop off point at New Springs Ex-Servicemen`s Club, Cale Lane, for refreshments and hopefully arriving at the Reebok for approximately 1:30pm.
