We’re delighted to announce that Stevenage have joined our Hertfordshire-wide campaign to get towns active. Our local partners, the East & North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity, are organising their first ever Your Town Get-Together Run to bring the local community together and bring their energy to town!
All profits from ticket sales are donated directly to the East & North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity based at Lister Hospital, to support all of the fantastic work they do with local patients and families.
The route is a 2KM loop, meaning you can choose to run it more than once if you wish.
The 4Km run is a 2-lap event (2k per lap) which begins at the Sundial outside Barclays taking runners along Queensway, before taking a left by costa to go down Park Place, through the underpass across to Town Centre Gardens. Runners will then head towards King George playing fields and do a loop of the perimeter, back up towards the Aldi underpass that brings you out by TK Maxx. The route will then take runners round the Forum shopping centre area back to the starting point.
encourage everyone to join us in town on the day of the event to cheer the runners on and get involved in bringing a positive energy to Stevenage Town Centre.
Expect food, stalls and activities to get the kids involved in! Every runner who raises over £50 for the hospital charity will receive a free running vest on the day. To set up a fundraising page, visit: www.justgiving.com/enh or download a sponsorship form here.
OUR CHARITABLE CAUSE
East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity exists to support the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust by funding projects to enhance patient care and experience at the Lister Hospital, New QEII Hospital, Hertford County Hospital and the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.
The charity supports thousands of families in East Hertfordshire each year by providing the very best medical equipment, cutting edge research, training for staff members and improving facilities across the local hospitals.
Here are some of the invaluable projects that have been funded by the Hospital charity with support from the local community:
- A brand new MRI Scanner for Lister Hospital that will benefit thousands of local patients each year
- The Butterfly Service which provides companionship and emotional support to 650 end of life patients each year
- Sensory tables, two fully furnished reminiscence rooms and specialist recliner chairs to support over 640 patients with dementia each year
- A beautiful mural for the children’s ward
- A portable ultrasound machine which will be used by 3000 pregnant mothers each year
- An annual summer Oncology party for local children with cancer
- Extra staff training so dedicated NHS staff can feel supported to deliver extraordinary care to patients
By supporting your local hospital charity you can help fund a wide variety of projects that support new-born babies up to the elderly with each and every one making a difference.
With your vital donations the charity can continue to transform the hospitals that care for you and your loved ones.
We are delighted to be collaborating with an amazing range of local partners on bringing this event to life, including East & North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity, Ocado, Stevenage Town Council, Spartans Running Club and Stevenage Leisure Limited.
