Hospiscare Marathon in a Month Heroes!

We are sending out a special thank you to those who took on our brand new event

Our Hospiscare Heroes are truly super; week after week, they support our charity with their fundraising endeavours across Exeter, Mid and East Devon. From all of us at Hospiscare, we are sending a huge thank you to all of our Hospiscare Heroes. 

This week, we are sending out a special thank you to the amazing people (and canines!) who braved the changeable October weather and walked, jogged, or ran a marathon (or several!) for our local charity.

We have been overwhelmed by the dedication of our supporters who took on Marathon in a Month. 209 amazing people signed up the event and collectively they have raised over £26,000 for local people living with a terminal illness and their families.

Here are a few of our favourite photos of our Marathon Heroes in action or receiving their medals and certificates for being such superstars for our charity.
