Great North Run 2017

10th September 2017


Have you ever wanted to take on an amazing challenge AND support people in need at the same time?! Well, look no further than the incredible Great North Run.

One of the most popular half marathons in Europe, the Great North Run grows year upon year and once again Willow Burn is looking for the elite few to run in aid of our hospice. With regular updates, free branded running vest and refreshments in the Charity Village on the day of the event (as well as a fun and relaxed thank you event!), running for Willow Burn is a fantastic opportunity.

Willow Burn offers free end of life, respite and palliative care to patients and their families from across the entire region of Derwentside and we are grateful for the ongoing support of the communities which we freely serve; but this year – why not help raise money to support our services AND take on this challenge event with a heart?

Registration for one of our exclusive #TeamWillowBurn places is just £53 and we ask that all of our runners aim to raise £300 towards the work we do here. You will receive a registration pack including sponsor forms and a sweepstake sheet to get you well on the way to your target. Don’t worry though – we know fundraising can be a bit daunting so our dedicated team of Fundraisers are always on hand to answer questions or give great ideas too!

For more information on the event, or raising sponsorship, please contact us on 01207 523900 fundraising@willowburnhospice.org.uk
