Run the London Marathon for Your Local Hospice
Run the London Marathon for your local Hospice
Southern Area Hospice Services are calling on local runners to join ‘Team Hospice’ and take part in the 2020 London Marathon to help raise vital funds for their cause.
Taking place on Sunday 26th April 2020, the London Marathon follows an iconic route through the city, taking in many of London’s most famous landmarks. Places in the London Marathon are much sought after so Southern Area Hospice is delighted to have secured an allocation.
The Southern Area Hospice London Marathon package includes guaranteed race entry, flights, accommodation and transfers. As well as that, participants will be a member of ‘Team Hospice 2020’ which means they will enjoy the camaraderie of taking part in the event as part of a group.
Every penny raised by ‘Team Hospice 2020’ will help Southern Area Hospice Services to continue their work providing specialist palliative care to people in the Southern Health Trust area who are living with Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease.
Local runner Kevin Morgan has taken part in the London Marathon for Southern Area Hospice Services an incredible six years in a row (2014 to 2019) raising thousands of pounds for Southern Area Hospice Services. Speaking of his experience Kevin said, “Taking part in one of the greatest sporting events in the world is an awesome experience and helping those in need by doing so only adds to the experience. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about it to go for it. I have greatly enjoyed my experiences in the London Marathon and have met some wonderful fellow runners along the way”.
With an annual fundraising target of £2.6 million, Southern Area Hospice Services relies heavily on the support of local people taking part in events such as the London Marathon to enable them to continue to provide specialist palliative care for patients and their families at a time when they need it most. Why not get involved and do something great for the Southern Area Hospice in this very special year for them as they mark 30 years of providing Hospice care.
