As you may remember, a couple of years ago I ran the Thames Path Challenge for MacMillan Cancer, I managed to raise just over £700 for that worthy cause and this year I am planning to tackle the course again but this time I am raising money for a just as worthy charity, Hospice UK.
Hospice UK look to provide the best possible end of life care for people with terminal conditions, be that in a person’s own home or at a hospice. I chose Hospice UK because of the excellent service they provided a good friend last year, giving him and his family the sort of support and help needed at the end of his life.
Please have a look at their site to see the work that they do.https://www.hospiceuk.org/
Although the Thames Path challenge is a race in which I have an actual fund raising target of £375, I’m looking to fund raising for Hospice UK across all of my races in the upcoming year and would love to break at least £1000 raised. So not only will you be sponsoring me to complete 60miles/100km in September but also for a number of other races.
The first of these is the Heartbreaker marathon in the New Forest, just 8 weeks away on the 26th Feb, which is then closely followed 3 weeks later with another run through the New Forest, but this time a 50km run on the 18th March.
So please head over to my justgiving page and give anything that you can, every penny counts. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Paul-Wenham3
