Once the scanner appeal was complete and because of the large amount of help and support given by staff and friends, it was decided to support the Earl Mountbatten Hospice which it continues to do today.As the years passed, the numbers of people taking part in the walk increased from about 25 in 1991 to around 8,000 now.In 2008 a new 'Flat Walk the Wight' was introduced running along the island's cycle network, aimed at those unable to manage the steep hills the traditional walk involves such as those in wheelchairs or with small children.
The event finishes with 'Walk the Wight', the largest walk from Bembridge to The Needles (One side of the island to the other).
The Walking Festival is one of the UK’s biggest walking festivals. They range from gentle strolls through some of the Island’s most beautiful scenery to the epic 66 mile Isle of Wight Challenge!

Walk the Wight has been running for 19 years in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice and is now the biggest sponsored walk in the South of England.
The 'Walk the Wight' event was first started in Spring 1991, when two members of staff from a company on the Island (Morey's which now sponsors the event) called Frank Stevens and Bill Bradley who enjoyed early morning walks arranged for a few friends and family members to walk from one side of the island to the other.
Walk the Wight is the largest walk of the festival, and is always the last to occur.
