Run for Charity

Run for Charity

Welcome to Winchester Half Marathon - Sunday 20th September 10am 

Some run for fun, others for fitness, but so many are now running for great causes!

Last years Winchester Half Marathon raised over £65,000 for charity, who wants to help us beat that in 2020?

If you would like to run in the Winchester Half Marathon, you can get a guaranteed entry with one of our charity partners. Every charity will support you, offering fundraising tips to reach your goals, as well as significant support and advice in the lead up to, and on your big day.

If you are keen to get involved as a charity, then why not take a look at further details of our Charity Packages

 

 

 

Macmillan Cancer Support - Lead National Charity

Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. One in three of us will get cancer and 2.5 million of us are living with it, with that number rising to four million by 2030. We can help because we are Macmillan.

Every day 29 people in Hampshire, where the Winchester half marathon is being held, hear the devastating news they have cancer. This will see Hampshire’s population of people living with cancer more than double between 2010 and 2030. This huge increase will in turn result in thousands more local people feeling isolated and alone, every day, even after treatment ends. Macmillan and its supporters must take action now to make sure we’re there to solve these issues.

When you're facing cancer it can feel like you've lost control, Macmillan is here to help you take it back. Whether it's a nurse being there from the moment you're diagnosed, a helping hand with your everyday chores, advice about money worries or just someone ready to listen when you need to talk. Cancer isn't going away but if you run for Team Macmillan, we can help make sure no one faces it alone.

Together, we are all Macmillan Cancer Support.

Victoria's Promise

Victoria’s Promise is filling the critical gaps in emotional, practical, physical and social support for young women who have been diagnosed with cancer. The aim of the charity is to support and empower young women, and their families, through the challenges of cancer treatment.
Some of the services we offer the women are counselling for them and their immediate family, cleaning and childcare services, yoga, specialised beauty treatments including oncology massage and microblading. Alongside the support services, Victoria’s Promise runs Affinity workshops. Bringing together young women going through similar journeys and challenges. These get-togethers remove the feeling of isolation, reduce fear and increase positivity and empowerment – all vital to their overall wellbeing, recovery and reduce recurrence.
Victorias Promise is there from day one to ensure these young women can concentrate on their treatment and recovery at the same time as keeping as much stability and normality in the home.

Winchester Hospice

Winchester Hospice needs to raise 2.5 million pounds to convert Burrell House, on the site of Royal Hampshire County Hospital into a 10 bedded Hospice, providing compassionate and specialist care, inpatient day care and community care by early 2019. 

Currently there is not a hospice in Winchester so people either die on the hospital wards, at home with limited support, or they and their family have to travel to hospices over 20 miles away. We need the community of Winchester to come together to help us raise the 2.5 million pounds so we can have the hospice up and running for our patients by early next year.
