Join Team Hospice UK for the TCS London Marathon
Every year, Hospice UK champions over 200 local hospices across the UK to care for more than 225,000 adults and children with life-limiting and terminal illnesses – and to support their families, too.
We believe that everyone, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, should receive the best possible care at the end of their life. We work to extend our reach, enabling quality hospice care to be delivered in any setting. We also tackle inequality, ensuring the LGBTQ+ community, gypsies and travelers, prisoners and people experiencing homelessness can access good quality, personalised end of life care.
Hospices are here to care and support everyone. They help you live well to the end of your life, however long that may be. The support of our London Marathon team enables us to help more people and their families in need of hospice care.
When you join Team Hospice UK runner for the 2022 TCS London Marathon, you will receive:
- a personalised running vest, pre-race breakfast and escort to the Start Line
- the noisiest cheers from our cheer points along the course
- a sports massage and hot meal at our post-race reception, discounts from top sports brands and much more!
Megan joined Team Hospice UK in 2019 and has been patiently waiting ever since to take on the London Marathon. 2022 is finally her year, so she told us what our support has meant to her since she signed up.
“Hospice UK have been an invaluable support during my marathon journey,” says Megan. “From the minute I joined the team I’ve felt like part of a supportive family. The Facebook group, full of other runners and members of Team Hospice UK, is an endless stream of encouragement, training ideas and fun.
“Hospice UK genuinely cares about its runners, giving us phone calls (even during lockdown, to check we were OK!) and sending us emails offering guidance. There’s always someone there to support you, and while running for such an amazing cause is wonderful enough in itself, you also want to run with other members of Team Hospice UK because they’ve become your friends.
“I’m so glad I picked Hospice UK and can’t wait to (finally!) run the real thing for them this year.”
