If you are looking to take on a challenge event, to set a personal challenge, perhaps in memory of loved one, to get fitter or to raise funds for local charity, Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland, we’d love to hear from you.
The charity organises challenge events throughout the year such as the C2C Cycle Event, which is taking place on 7-9th July, or participation in half marathons such as the Great North Run. All places for the Great North Run 2017 have now sold out. For more information please take a look at our events calendar.
In 2017 we have a brand new team event – The Hospice at Home 20 Challenge. Can you walk 20 miles to celebrate 20 years of care? There are 10 Peaks to conquer on the route which starts and finishes at Braithwaite Institute.
If you fancy going further afield challenges, treks and experiences may be of interest. Events such as ‘Unite and Bike’ and The London to Paris Cycle Challenge, both organised by Global Adventure Challenges, are two examples of challenge events that offer travel experiences and fantastic challenges rolled into one.
We are also promoting a China Trek for 2017. Would you like to visit China, take on a walking challenge and support Hospice at Home? Full information can be found here.
There are also many local events where challenges are offered – including fun runs, skydives or sportives – many of which offer the chance to raise funds for a charity of your choice.
You may also have ideas of your own and may wish to organise your own fundraising challenge event. The Hospice at Home Fundraising Team can offer sponsorship forms, t-shirts or running vests and fundraising advice, if needed. Please call 01768 210719 to discuss your ideas with the Fundraising Team.
