Raise £100 pounds and we’ll send you a free TeamCHC T-shirt!

Following the success of Your Marathon Your Pace we are back again for 2021! With this years London Marathon postponed to October, whether you are due to run it this year or haven’t quite made it off the couch, this challenge is for you. This challenge can be done in lockdown and when restrictions are lifted. You can do it alone or you can do it with your friends or family.

We’re offering a fantastic medal, to showcase you have achieved the distance, but above all of that you will get the unbeatable feeling of having done something really good for someone else.

This is Your Marathon at Your Pace – the event you can complete in your own space and in your own time. This year we’re giving you as long as you like to complete your personal challenge, and we hope this will  appeal to all ages and abilities.

All you need to do is sign up, download Strava or similar tracking device and get going. Join our Strava Club and share your distances, stories, photos and achievements and receive kudos and encouragement from likeminded people in our group.

Can I walk too?

Run, Jog or Walk, it’s up to you how you get your distance.

You can do it on your own, with your partner, with the kids and/ or with the dog ( yes they get a medal and certificate too!)

We’re giving you as long as you need to complete your marathon. When you have completed your challenge simply send us your tracker history and a photo for your certificate and  we’ll send you your medal and a smashing certificate too.

How do I fundraise?

Raise £100 and we’ll send you a free TeamCHC T-shirt!

Set up your JustGiving page and share it everywhere –  your friends and family will instantly empty their purses into your fundraiser from the sheer shock of learning that you are going to do a Marathon.  If you want to fundraise for a particular Hospice, sign up with JustGiving to Cornwall Hospice Care and then let us know which Hospice; St Julia’s or Mount Edgcumbe, you are supporting.

On a more serious note, we’re still facing a crisis like no other.  We have managed to keep our two hospices open 24/7 throughout the entire pandemic despite our shops being shut for much of the last 12 months and most of our Fundraising events cancelled, so we cannot thank you enough for your support. We can only continue to provide our services with your help.

£20 funds an hour of our specialist nursing care and we need this now more than ever.  If you can raise £100 each for us that’s 5 hours of nursing care.  If you don’t want to fundraise please consider making a one off donation when you register for your challenge.

You can make that happen, so please sign up today and invite your friends along too.

Please do consider setting up a JustGiving page, its entirely free, it only takes a few minutes and can make a huge difference.  A share on Facebook is worth an average of £18 – this is almost an hour of care – how many hours could you fund?
