Why Run For Us?

You'll be helping us to  reach our County Hospital Stafford Fundraising Appeal target. We’ve just £200,000 left to raise!

With the donations we have received to date, work has started — including, on the wards where we have used art work to help vulnerable patients, such as those with dementia, find their way around and provided day rooms so they can take part in activities and socialise together. This all improves their wellbeing and helps their recuperation.  Next is our improvements to the out patients unit; but we need your help to raise the last £200,000 to make it possible for us to fund the family facility and the garden for patient in the chemotherapy and haematology unit. That's what you will be running for.

We’ll Support You!

As part of our team you’ll receive fantastic support from the moment you sign up all the way until you cross that finish line.

  • A UHNM running top that you can wear with pride
  • Support from our dedicated fundraising team
  • Fundraising tips and resources to help you smash your target
