Last year, thanks to the amazing efforts of all who took part, Dorothy House Hospice Care raised over £60,000 to help fund vital patient care.

In 2018 we want to raise even more than 2017 – and have an even better time along the way! As the registration fee covers the logistics of running the event you have the choice to:
– Pledge to raise a minimum of £40 in sponsorship
– Make a personal donation in lieu of sponsorship (the amount is your choice but we suggest a minimum of £40).  This donation can be made when you sign up or within one month of the event (by Monday 15 October).
