100km in February’ is a virtual fundraising challenge for St Ann’s. Join hundreds of incredible St Ann’s Hospice supporters, from where ever you are, in taking on 100km in the month of February.
The start of a new year is a great time to plan your goals for the year ahead. We all know how good exercise is for our physical and mental health, so we’ve got the perfect challenge for 2022 to help meet those exercise goals. Participants can complete their kilometres however they like – run, walk, cycle or swim, or a combination of all four! The important thing is to get out and get moving to raise funds. There will be lots of support for participants along the way and we have a dedicated Facebook group where you can meet other amazing fundraisers, and get loads of tips and ideas. The group is a fun space, where you’ll get support from your fellow challengers to keep you motivated in the run up to and during the February challenge. There is no registration fee and every penny you raise will make a difference. Well even send you a free t-shirt for you to wear with pride throughout the challenge! We would love as many people as possible to join in and raise what you can to support the patients and families we care for. Rachel McMillan, St Ann’s Chief Executive
As a charity, our doctors, nurses other healthcare and support staff have only been able to continue caring for patients on the front line throughout this pandemic, thanks to the generous support of the community, so we’re hugely grateful to anyone who is able to join us and take part this year. So many of our events and activities have had to be cancelled over the last two years, and it would mean so much if people could pledge to get outside, have some exercise, and raise much needed funds so we can continue to provide specialist palliative and end of life care to those who need it. We even have people taking part who will do the distance with laps of their garden. It’s a really challenging time for all of us, but hopefully people will embrace the challenge whilst staying safe and keeping within government rules and guidelines. Thank you in advance to anyone who does sign up to take part. I can’t thank you enough, and it really will make a huge difference during an extremely difficult time. Rachel McMillan, St Ann’s Chief Executive
Participants will receive a free t-shirt to don during their challenge.
