Calling all Half Marathon runners

Hospice fundraiser Lisa Carson has signed up to run the 2015 Stafford Half Marathon for Katharine House Hospice and she is encouraging supporters to join the hospice team which has already had 10 local supporters come forward to be part of #TeamKHH.

2015 saw 50 local runners come together to run Stafford Half Marathon for the hospice and together they raised a fantastic £10,000. This money has gone a long way towards paying for free hospice care.

Katharine House Hospice is encouraging local supporters who have already obtained a place in the 2016 Stafford Half Marathon and wish to raise funds for the hospice to contact the Fundraising Team on 01785 270808 or email fundraising@khhospice.org.uk. For those who are yet to secure their place the hospice ask that you first register at www.staffordbc.gov.uk/halfmarathon before contacting the Fundraising Team.

Lisa Carson said:

“We always encourage supporters to run for the hospice at this fantastic event and in 2016 I hope to get a team of 100 people together. I know that Stafford Borough Council has already sold a massive number of places for the event, which is brilliant. We are offering fundraising support, training runs, #TeamKHH running tops and we will have a Katharine House marquee in Market Square on the day of the race for our team to meet up in before and after the race.
“2015 was a record year for #TeamKHH but I’m certain we can smash that record in 2016 and raise even more money. Let’s help keep the hospice running by putting on our running shoes for the Stafford Half Marathon.”

If you would like to join #TeamKHH and run in support of your local hospice please contact Lisa on 01785 270808 or email fundraising@khhos
