This February Hope House Children’s Hospices are challenging its supporters to complete 14 miles in 14 days in any way they want to.

The virtual Valentine Challenge will take place between February 1 and February 14, and entrants can decide how they want to do it, be it walking, running, cycling, skipping, rowing or even hopping.

Places for the Valentine Challenge are free, but everyone who signs up is asked to raise £14, and those raising more than £28 will also be entered into a special prize draw. All entrants will also receive a medal and bespoke pin badge.

Hannah Robinson, fundraiser, said: “What a way to blow out those January blues by throwing yourself into a challenge at the start of February.

“As there are still likely to be lockdown measures in place we have once again had to get creative with our fundraising, and this gives people the perfect chance to take on a challenge, raise vital funds for our hospices, all while sticking to the lockdown guidelines.

“Fundraising is as vital to us now as ever as a result of the pandemic and it is important for us to keep giving people new ways to support us.

“We look forward to seeing all the creative ways that people might decide to do their 14 miles.”
