For the first time ever we are giving our supporters the chance to enjoy a fun run right on our doorstep, and help raise money for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
A brand new event will see hundreds of people enjoy a day of running and fun at our centre in Wirral, and help transform cancer care.
The course is a 2km run or walk around the grounds of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre and will involve some fun elements for all the family.
The event will take place on Sunday 10th February and is open to all levels of ability. It will be the finale of the annual Let’s Go Green week, when our supporters across the region hold their own fundraising events.
We've created an exclusive route which will take you around the hospital site and surrounding land. You can do the route as many times as you like too, you can do one lap or push yourself for an extra challenge and do as many as you can.
If that's not enough fun, we're adding a splash of colour to get extra messy. It wouldn't be Let's Go Green week without being covered head to toe in our favourite colour. We'll even have our Green Powder Paint Station situated out on the route ready to cover you head to toe in green.
We'd love to see people taking part in green clothes or fancy dress - whether they’re an alien, a Hulk or a Tinkerbell, just as long as it's green.
It will cost £7 for junior competitors and £12 for adults and we are asking that everyone raises a minimum sponsorship of £25.
Everyone can take part, whether it's to celebrate a life, remember a loved one or just enjoy time with family and friends.
Once registered, a member of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity team will be in touch with final event day details and to provide a registration pack. T-shirts and wigs are available to buy through our site and on the day.
Mark Parkinson, Event Manager for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, said: “This is a unique opportunity for people to take part in a fun event right here in the grounds of our hospital.
“We hope that people of all ages and abilities will take part and enjoy a brilliant new event while raising money to help transform cancer care.”
The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is working to raise £15 million towards the construction of a new specialist hospital in Liverpool city centre and improvements to the Wirral site.
