Brand new Reindeer Run canters into Chesham

Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s brand new festive fundraiser The Reindeer Run isReindeer Run cantering into Chesham on Sunday 26 November 2017. 

The Reindeer Run has all the trimmings necessary to bring people together and make them all feel part of the herd!  The exciting 2k Reindeer Run will see participants race off from Lowndes Park wearing antlers, painted faces and a limited edition Reindeer Run 2017 T-shirt, and promises to be great fun for all ages.  Reindeers don’t have to be runners – they can canter, trot or walk round the course.  All will receive a special carrot-shaped medal as they fly across the finish line.

Gillian Barnett, Director of Fundraising and Marketing, said, “The Reindeer Run will be an exciting experience for children and grown-ups alike.  It is perfect for a festive day out with the family or a group of friends.  And why not get a group of work colleagues together and use the Reindeer Run to kick off your workplace festivities? The specially designed accessories that are included in the cost of the signup fee, give the event a more exciting feel than any other run you might take part in throughout the year. It really captures the Christmas spirit and brings people together during the festive period.  This is especially fitting because the money raised helps keep local patients at home with their families throughout what might be their last Christmas together.”

Rennie Grove provides care and support to local adults and children with cancer and other life-limiting illness and their families. Through a 24/7 responsive hospice at home service and support services for carers and family members, the charity makes it possible for patients to choose to stay at home surrounded by their families and friends, something that is especially important at Christmas.  87% of the money needed to run the service every year is generously donated by the local community by supporting events like this which is why raising sponsorship is so vital to the charity.

The entry fee – that includes all your reindeer apparel – is just £5 for those aged 0-4, £10 for those aged 5-16 and £16 for the 16s and overs.

So please visit Rennie Grove’s website and sign up today to be part of this brand new Reindeer Run.
