Runners at the startlineLewis-Manning Hospice in Poole is inviting people of all ages to get out their training shoes on October 20 and join the ‘Time To Care’ 10K, 5K and Kids K running event at Bournemouth Seafront.

The charity, which offers free specialist palliative nursing care to hundreds of local people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, is organising the fundraiser where participants can choose one of the multi-ability seafront routes to run, walk or jog in memory or support of a loved one.

The routes will take runners from Bournemouth Pier Approach, along the promenade, up to as far as Southbourne and back, and is open to both serious runners and fun runners, with children in strollers also welcome (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).

Maria Tidy, Fundraising Manager at Lewis-Manning Hospice, said: “This will be fun event for everyone and also a great opportunity to raise some much needed funds for our hospice. Every penny raised will go towards the comfort and care of the patients we support, so every walker, jogger or runner really will make a difference.”

Registration is £15, £10 and £2.50, depending on the distance, and includes a hospice T-shirt and medal which is the runner’s to keep. Suggested minimum sponsorship is £25 per adult and £10 per child but every penny counts, so whatever supporters can contribute will be welcomed by the hospice.
