The Hospice Mini Marathon returns for 2024!

Help your child to make a positive difference in their local community by running 2.62-miles for special hospice care!

Open to children aged 5 to 16, the Hospice Mini Marathon offers a wonderful opportunity for families to come together and enjoy a day of walking, running, or jogging in the scenic Royal Greenwich Park.

In 2023, an incredible 900 children took part and collectively raised over £45,000 to support the families we care for.

Our Hospice Mini Marathon isn’t just your typical fun run, it’s a day filled with excitement:

  • DJ
  • Performances by the Rock Choir
  • Free sports activities
  • Face painting
  • Meet and greet with the local royalty the Pearly People
  • A lively cheer squad along the 2.62 mile route
  • Plus hundreds of children, many in fancy dress, running 2.62 miles to raise funds for special hospice care!

Registration fees are £10 per child, which includes a JLL sponsored Goodie Bag and a Hospice Mini Marathon medal!

Registration fees help cover the costs of running this event so every penny of sponsorship you can raise makes a significant difference to the comfort and well-being of our patients and their families. We invite you to create a fundraising page and help us maximise the difference we can make to families. Click here to request a free Fundraising Pack!

Your support will contribute to providing patients with pain and symptom control, expert in-home care, psychological and social support for the entire family, and rehabilitation to help patients lead fulfilling lives.

Supporting this event will directly impact local families who are being cared for by our dedicated Hospice team who are striving to ensure that patients and their families are never alone when facing a life-limiting illness.

If you’re raising funds in memory of a loved one, please contact us as we’d love to support you with your fundraising.
