Do you want to make a real difference to the lives of people and their families living with life-limiting illnesses in your local area? Well you can by running Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon in aid of St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth.
Your fundraising really can help change lives, contributing to the 3,400 patients we care for each and every year. We’ll support you with ideas to help you fundraise and of course, we’ll be there with you to share your big day, cheering you on and giving you encouragement when you need it most.
Simply let us know when you’ve signed up and we will make sure you receive your St Luke’s fundraising supporter pack, including a St Luke’s running vest for you to train in and of course for the big race day.
At St Luke’s we provide specialist end of life care for over 3,400 people each year across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall. We have a community nursing team that travels throughout the region, caring for people in their own homes; a hospital team that ensures patients admitted to Derriford Hospital receive expert advice and our specialist unit where patients stay with us for bespoke pain relief.
With only part funding from the government, we rely heavily on the support of our local community to raise the £4 million a year it takes to help the people in desperate need of our services. Choosing to run your next race with St Luke’s is your chance to make a real difference to people’s lives. By getting your friends and family to sponsor you, you will be raising money to help us continue to deliver this vital care in your local community.
