Cornwall Hospice Care are delighted to be bringing Run Falmouth Half Marathon, the 4th race in the 2018 Cornwall Glass & Glazing Grand Prix calendar, back again for its 7th year.
In association with the Falmouth Road Runners, this challenging road run takes you through the beautiful coast and countryside of Falmouth.
A good level of fitness and training is required to complete Run Falmouth Half Marathon but whatever your ability you can achieve your goal and complete the half marathon!
Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.
£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.
£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.
£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families through the loss of a loved one.
