Runners from across the various business areas at WDH braved the rain and raised over £2000 for Wakefield Hospice by taking part in their annual Wakefield 10k road race earlier this month.
WDH had the largest group on the day with over 25 runners taking part in the event. While some of the runners were experienced others were new to it, but they all spent hours after work and on weekends training to prepare for the big day.
Keeley Harrison, Wakefield Hospice’s Fundraising Manager, said: “We are over the moon with the number of people who entered the Wakefield 10K this year. With 2,000 runners taking part in the 10K and 1K mini run we are expecting to raise lots of sponsorship money which will make a difference to patients and their family’s here at Wakefield Hospice. For every £20 raised in sponsorship we are able to fund one hour of care – making a huge difference to someone living with an end of life diagnosis. We are so thankful to all the runners for joining us on this important day for Wakefield.”
