Elf Run

Register your school or nursery

Ho ho ho! It’s that time again!

For the last four years, the Dorothy House Elf Run has brought us all plenty of festive cheer, and thanks to the amazing support from local schools and nurseries, it has raised an incredible £59,000!

Elf Run returns for 2024!

We’re delighted to bring back the Elf Run this December, and it’s your chance to put on a run that suits your school. Whether you get the whole school year running one mile, put on an assault course, or hold a festive-themed PE lesson, it’s completely up to you!

Taking part? We’ve got you covered!

We can provide you with:

• Elf hats for each participant
• Posters to promote your event
• Sponsorship forms
• Certificates for after your event
• The opportunity for a large cheque presentation with the children following your event

Whether you have one class or get the whole school involved, it’s entirely up to you! Parents and families are also welcome to take part. We’ll then work with you to help you hold the safest, most enjoyable run possible!

Raising money for palliative and end of life care in your community

Of course, the goal is to raise as much money as possible to support Dorothy House. Every penny raised will help us to care for patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families. The support of our local community is incredibly important, as it helps us to ensure families can continue to receive our support when they need it the most.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us here at Elf HQ by emailing communityfundraising@dorothyhouse-hospice.org.uk or by calling 01225 721480. We look forward to hearing from you!
