Prospect Hospice is the leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north Wiltshire. Working closely with you, our colleagues within partner organisations, we want to ensure that the very best care is available to everyone facing the end of life. This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end of life care and support.
Prospect Hospice has launched a virtual challenge for people to exercise and raise vital funds for the hospice.
The charity’s 100k Your Way gives people the choice to walk, run, swim or cycle 100 kilometres in the location of their choice and at their own pace.
The challenge begins today (1 September) and finishes on 31 October 2021.
Sheryl Crouch, head of income at Prospect Hospice, said: “We think the 100k Your Way challenge is a fun and achievable target for people to challenge themselves while at the same time raising funds for the hospice.
“It gives people who are taking part the flexibility to complete 100 kilometres to fit in with their lifestyle and they can choose to walk, run, swim, cycle or even paddleboard. It can be done in a few days or weeks.”
Sheryl said people could clock up the kilometres on the daily school run, in their lunch break or even walking their dog. For people counting their daily steps, 1.66 kilometres is equivalent to roughly 2,100 steps.
For people who are used to running longer distances, there are park runs or half marathons to consider.
The challenge can be done outdoors or on treadmills and exercise bikes and completed kilometres can be tracked using Strava or a similar app.
Sheryl added: “Our fundraising income was hit hard by the pandemic with many of our traditional fundraising events cancelled but our services have continued throughout.
“Every donation made will allow the hospice to provide specialist care to patients who are terminally ill and offer support to their families too.”
Everyone who completes the challenge will receive a medal and certificate.
