‘Push It For The Peace’ returns with more challenging obstacles, fun, mud, foam and water to raise money for the hospice.
Taking place on Saturday September 22 in Cassiobury Park, fundraisers will still have a choice of a 5k or a 10k route.
Funding of more than £150,000 has been cut by Herts Valley Clinical Commissioning group (CCG) for the Peace Hospice in Watford
Last year a record 930 fundraisers took part in the challenging event raising £70,000 in vital funds for the hospice.
This year’s target is £70,000. The Hospice asks that all participants raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship to help reach this target.
“Every year the Hospice needs £5 million to run its services,” said Debbie Leven, Head of Marketing & Communications at the hospice.
“Now, for every £1 of income the charity receives, less than 20p of that comes from the NHS.
“We are relying on the local community more than ever to raise vital funds to help it continue to deliver our free services for those people with life-limiting illnesses in our community, as well as their families and carers.”
Every penny you raise will go towards providing Peace Hospice Care services to help improve the quality of life for patients and families facing a life limiting illness by providing care and support in the setting of their choice.
The event village starts at 9 am with the main event starting at 10 am. There will be food & drink vans, rides and entertainment for all ages.
Participants must be 16 or over. To sign up for the 5K for £30 and the 10K for £35, visit https://www.peacehospicecare.org.uk
