Jingle 5k/10k - Your Way

Join us virtually for our Jingle 5K/10K Challenge on Sunday 5th December 2021!

We’re asking our supporters to join us virtually for our favourite festive fundraiser on Sunday 5th December.

The challenges that the pandemic presented to traditional fundraising in 2020 have continued throughout 2021 and we still need our incredible supporters to ensure we can continue to deliver our lifeline services to local people living with a life-limiting or life-threatening illness. 

How to take part

It wouldn’t be our Jingle 5k/10k event without the silliest Christmas outfits possible! Every year local people get dressed up in Santa costumes, elf costumes, or simply their favourite Christmas jumper.

It’s not just for grownups either, with three distances to choose from including a Virtual 1k Kids Reindeer Dasher for the little ones, or a Virtual 5k or 10k Race, both avid and amateur runners alike can take part together.

Whether you take part on your own, with your household, your sporting club or with your four-legged friends, it’s your walk/jog/run/cycle, your way! Plan your route and set off, in support of Hospice, and help us continue to be there for our children and their families when they need us most.
