Memory Miles - East Cheshire Hospice

Memory Miles

With Our Community We Can Go The Distance

This summer we are asking you, our community, to help us go the distance! In just over 8 weeks we want to cover the distance from John O’Groats to Lands End (874 miles) by the miles walked, ran, cycled, skated or swam by our supporters in memory of those they have lost!

Anyone can take part in this community memory event and whatever you can do will contribute to the end goal. Whether you walk 1 mile or 100 miles, whether you raise £10 or hundreds of £’s we are all in this together and your efforts will directly help people in your community who need it most.

Very kindly sponsored by our lovely friends at Sidney Jackson & Son!

How does it work?
  1. Register to take part on the form below.
  2. Set up your personal fundraising page on our exclusive Memory Miles website with Just Giving!
  3. Pick your method and your target distance and/or fundraising target.
  4. Share your fundraising page with friends & family to gain sponsorship!
  5. Complete your Memory Miles & log them on your fundraising page.

Together with all the supporters taking part, your miles will be added to our distance totaliser, helping us reach our destination (and possibly beyond!).

You can dedicate your fundraising and your Memory Miles to someone who meant the world to you.

 
Why should you take part?

As you may know, East Cheshire Hospice is the 2nd lowest funded Hospice, so fundraising is essential to keeping the Hospice services going. With the news of COVID-19 this brought our fundraising to a standstill. Luckily our community is the greatest there is and showed us generosity that we could not have predicted. However we are still not there yet, we need continued support and fundraising to help us go the distance.

 

Let’s get going!

You can help by taking part, raising sponsorship for your Memory Miles and spreading the word – getting everyone you know involved. Share your stories, let us know why you wanted to take part and who you are thinking about while you cover those Memory Miles.
