Willen Hospice Lake Run attracts 320 runners

    Held on the morning of Sunday 15th October, the event saw a mix of novice and advanced runners come together to run Willen Lakes to help raise vital funds to support the care provided by Willen Hospice.

    Runners could choose three different routes – 10k, 5k and 2k - and so far over £8,000 has been raised.

    Sarah Sweet-Rowley, Events Manager at Willen Hospice, said, “We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who took part in our Lake Run – from those who came for a gentle jog to those looking to beat their personal best, every single runner made a difference.  It was a beautiful morning for a run and we were so happy at how many people got involved in support of their local hospice. Every minute we need to raise £7 to continue to provide our care, and each and every runner who took part helped us in our vision to always be there to care for our patients and their loved ones.”

    Special thanks to Volkswagen Financial Services for gifting the finisher medals and for their team of marshals who covered the 10k route. Also, thanks to Fossil UK, the winners of each route received a Fitness and Sleep monitor.

    Willen Hospice needs to raise £10,000 a day to continue to provide its specialist end of life care in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, and events like these are one of the many ways the hospice raises funds.
