A hospice’s flagship fundraiser, its mini marathon, will return on Sunday 8 May.

Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice is appealing to local families to show their support by taking part in this fun-filled and energetic running event in Greenwich Park.

This popular community event is a key date in the hospice’s annual fundraising calendar.

It gives running heroes the opportunity to get active and have fun, taking on the 2.62-mile route with friends or siblings.

All sponsorship raised will help to provide care to people with a terminal illness and their families, in the boroughs of Greenwich and Bexley.

The Hospice Mini Marathon, now in its ninth year, is open to children aged 5-16 and of all abilities. T

hey can run, walk or jog the route and younger children must be accompanied by an adult.

Sponsored by JLL, there will be prizes for the best fancy dress costume on the day, as well as performances from the Rock Choir and appearances from the Pearly Queen of Greenwich, the Pearly King of Woolwich and the Pearly Princess.

Hospice Events Manager Augusta Adu, said: “We’re delighted that the Hospice Mini Marathon is back again in 2022. After such a difficult two years, it will be incredible to fill Royal Greenwich Park once again. We begin at the Bandstand where hundreds of charity runners start their own London Marathon journey so it’s an iconic and inspiring location for our own Hospice Mini Marathon.

“This is such an important event for the Hospice – not only because it is a great day out for the family, but it’s so heart-warming to see hundreds of children rising to the challenge and helping to make a difference in their community. The look of determination and achievement on their faces as they cross the finish line and receive their medal is the highlight of the day.”

Megan Boyle, Head of Fundraising at the Hospice, said: “Events like the Mini Marathon make such a huge difference to the people we care for.

“Our Hospice team ensures people with a terminal illness and their families have the practical and emotional support they need. Hospice care is about creating memories with loved ones, support when facing difficult choices and it’s about living life to the fullest. Your support brings this very special kind of care to families when they need it most – and we couldn’t do it without you.”

Registration for the Hospice Mini Marathon will close on Tuesday 3 May.
