St Nicholas Hospice Care
Angel Hill, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1LT
Join us on 8 October for a race that goes beyond the distance for those supported by hospice care
This is a Partner race.
This means that we are working with a host Partner Organisation and provide timing and/or race management services for their event.
St Nic's is thrilled to bring this exciting and brand new event to Bury St Edmunds. Sponsored by Jaynic, we aim to bring together runners of all abilities to challenge themselves while raising sponsorship for their local hospice.
Every stride you take will help a local patient and their loved ones when they need it most.
Did you know that St Nicholas Hospice Care costs more than £6m to run each year and more than 75% of these costs are raised by people like you?
Whether that's playing their lottery, making a donation, leaving a gift in a will or raising sponsorship for their events just like this! It is only because of you that patients and their loved ones in your local community are able to receive the support and care they need.
