Adding Life to Days

Be a Hospice Hero with our fantastic 2017 challenges!

Still looking for a New Year’s resolution for 2017? We might have just the thing to get you motivated this year – a lifechanging challenge in aid of Nottinghamshire Hospice!

Whether you’re a diehard daredevil or just fancy pushing yourself towards a personal challenge, we’ve got places on a great range of events including prestigious UK cycle events, epic charity treks and even sponsored skydives!

Our charity challenges and events for 2017

If you’re new to running events, Nottingham Women’s 5K or 10K is an ideal starter challenge, while more seasoned runners can set themselves the target of the Robin Hood Half Marathon or Full Marathon in September.

Keen adventurers looking to get away in 2017 should sign up for our overseas trek along the Great Wall of China. It’s a brilliant opportunity to see this iconic, 6000km landmark up close, hiking past mountains and over watch towers in an epic 5-day journey you’re unlikely to forget!

For something closer to home, you can join our own Community Fundraiser, Elaine Hopkins, as she takes on the Hadrian’s Wall Trek in July, a 2-day camping and hiking challenge that tackles 25 miles of the famous wall path, through the gorgeous Northumbrian landscape. Or swap North for South, and push your pedals all the way from London to Brighton, in this classic charity bike ride.

If a skydive is on your bucket list, this is a truly courageous way to be a Hospice Hero – jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet in an incredible tandem parachute jump!

How your challenge supports us

You won’t be just getting out of your comfort zone or getting fit and healthy – your training and hard work will support people in Nottinghamshire dealing with a life-limiting illness, so you really can change lives.

Nottinghamshire Hospice provides care, counselling and friendly company at our Day Therapy Centre near Mapperley, and our nurses and healthcare assistants work through the day and night out in local communities providing a Hospice at Home service so that people at the end of their lives feel comfortable, safe and cared for.
