Hope House are looking for energetic people to sign up to their sporting fundraising events as part of Team Hope House in 2020. The children’s charity are backing a range of events from half marathons to triathlons as well as organising their popular annual Cycle Challenge and their brand new Snowdon Sunrise Trek.
First out of the blocks is the Wrexham Village Bakery Half Marathon closely following by Welshpool 10k. Their list of challenges in 2020 also include Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon, Oswestry 10k and the popular Shrewsbury Triathlon.
Challenges are subject to registration fees and minimum sponsorship for each event entered. In return supporters will receive their free Hope House running vest, fundraising pack and support up to and on the day.
If supporters have already registered for these events or wish to register for an event not listed, they can still become part of Team Hope House by committing to raise minimum sponsorship.
The first ever Hope House Snowdon Sunrise Trek will take you to the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon, in the early hours of Saturday 4th July 2020 where you will watch the sunrise with views across the mountains and coast. Registration is £20 plus £100 sponsorship per person.
The annual Hope House Cycle Challenge will be taking place on Sunday 9th August. The popular ride is a choice of two scenic routes – 56 miles to Lake Vyrnwy or 72 miles to Bala Lake. Cyclists will be treated to a snack stop at a Half Way Feed Station and a delicious home-made feast of cakes and savouries at the end. Cyclists can register for the early bird price of £25, on the day entry will be available at £35.
Every week 3 local families face their biggest fear and their child dies, tragically Hope House can only afford to help 1. It is only with your support that Hope House can be there for every mum, dad, brother and sister who needs them so please challenge yourself in 2018 and help them ensure no family faces the death of a child alone.
If you would like to sign up for any of the events visit www.hopehouse.org.uk/events or call the Fundraising Office on 01691 671671.
