Completing a half marathon, 10K or 5K can mean so much more than a fitness challenge and you runners do a fantastic job of keeping St Luke’s close to your hearts. It makes us beam with pride when we see you clocking up the miles sporting our charity’s name across your chest. Collectively this year’s runners have raised over £14,000 and still counting. That’s enough to provide a full package of care including bereavement support for over 14 families at home.
For kind-hearted runner Craig from Hartley Vale in Plymouth, it was a run to remember in more ways than one. It was a way to say thank you for the care that his father and mother-in-law received in their final days, both at home and in our specialist unit at Turnchapel.
With the help of his supportive friends and family, he was able to take on the challenge motivated by his precious memories of those he had lost and the St Luke’s nurses who made a difference in those final days.
Make your next run matter, run for St Luke’s. Whether it’s the Ocean City Half Marathon, the Plymouth 10k, the South West Coastal Path, Coast to Coast, the London Marathon or even the Marathon De Sable in the Sahara Desert, your amazing efforts will make all the difference to our vital patient care.
