Can you take on our Challenge 55?

We’re launching an exciting challenge this summer to mark our 55th Emerald Anniversary.

Are you up for the challenge? Can you run 5.5miles, cycle 55 miles or swim 55 lengths? Better still, could you take on the ultimate challenge and do all three in our Challenge 55 Triathlon on Sunday 1st October?

The running and cycling routes will start and finish at St. Joseph’s Hospice in Thornton and will take in some of the beautiful woodlands and scenery surrounding the hospice. Our swimmers will be using a local swimming pool (location to be confirmed).

Simply choose your event (or all three), get your family and friends on board and sign up now. Then get fundraising through our Challenge 55 Just Giving page.

The swimming event will kick off at 8am, followed by the run at 11am and the cycling event at 1pm.

Registration is £10 per person/per event, or £25 for the Triathlon. There is a minimum sponsorship of £50.

As a registered charity, we need to raise £6,500 every day and your donations will go directly towards providing specialist end of life care for over 200 local people with a wide range of conditions every year.
