Walk a day in the steps of our Hospice nurses and support our frontline services!

Our Inpatient Unit nurses have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic to treat both COVID-positive and terminally ill patients and their families. We need your support more than ever this year as we continue to fundraise throughout the pandemic.

Our event consists of a step challenge where you will be able to choose between three different difficulty options and you will have to walk that distance within one day. You can choose between 3, 5 and 8 miles and these correspond to the number of steps that three of our Inpatient Unit nurses take in one day on the ward.
