The Breakfast Run is back – all Teddy Bears welcome!

Hospiscare’s Breakfast Run 2017 has been launched to the delight of the students at Heathcote Primary School in Tiverton, who held a Bring your Teddy to School day to celebrate the occasion.

Hospiscare’s George the Mouse joined them, helping to explain how the Breakfast Run at Knightshayes on the 17th September will help local patients and their families.

The Breakfast Run, a sponsored walk, run or jog will raise much needed donations to maintain and develop hospice services that are led from Pine Lodge in Tiverton. Situated on Post Hill in Tiverton, Pine Lodge provides support and activities for local patients with life-limiting illnesses and has recently introduced specialised sessions for patients who have also been diagnosed with dementia. Pine Lodge is the base of Hospiscare’s Mid Devon Community Specialist Nursing Team, who visit patients in their homes to give vital medical support and assistance to those who need it.

The Breakfast Run, a choice of 5km or 10km routes in the beautiful gardens at Knightshayes, is open to all members of the public. The entry fee pays for Hospiscare to hold the event but all sponsorship raised by the participants goes directly into supporting Hospiscare patients in the local community through some of their toughest times.

If you take advantage of our Early Bird offer and register before the 2nd of June, the registration fee is £12 per adult and £7 per child under 16 years old.  The price after this time is £17 per adult and £10 per child.

Once you have registered you will receive a Breakfast Run Pack, which will give you helpful fundraising hints and tips and a sponsorship form, so your friends and family can donate money to Hospiscare and celebrate your amazing running, jogging or walking abilities.
