Cornwall Hospice Care are proud to introduce Run Falmouth Kids Race, a brand new running event running alongside Run Falmouth Half Marathon 2018.
Run Falmouth Kids Run is in its first year and is organised and managed by Cornwall Hospice Care in association with the Falmouth Road Runners.
Setting off after the main race the Kids Run will follow the first mile of the Run Falmouth course along beautiful coastal scenery and Pendennis Castle.
Run Falmouth Kids Run is open to all ages under the age of 16, however any participants under the age of 7 years old must be accompanied by an adult (adult places are free).
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.
