2 days, 10 friends, 170 miles!

Become a Ragnarian in the ultimate team relay challenge! Over one weekend you and 9 friends will take on the stunning South East Coast from Sittingbourne to Brighton, through quaint seaside towns, rolling fields, ocean breezes, and the most beautiful white cliffs around.

One runner hits the road at any one time, with each team member running three ‘legs’ ranging from 3 – 11 miles and varying in difficulty. Most of the team will complete their first leg on day one, their second under the stars and their third on day two as you head to the finish.

How your sponsor money will help

£887 will allow a nurse to support a family immediately following bereavement, helping them to plan the funeral and to say their final goodbyes to their child

£1,500 allows our Community Team to host a Family Day for 20 families, providing a range of activities and information for the whole family to enjoy

£1,953 will give a child a 3 night break at Chestnut Tree House where they will receive specialist care and symptom management from our nursing team and, where required, end of life care. Of course they will also be able to enjoy the hydrotherapy pool, relax in the multi-sensory room and join in with a host of activities, whilst mum and dad get the chance to “recharge their batteries.”
