St Luke's Home Run. 13 miles this March, your way!

We've all been spending more time at home recently and this might have led you to discover a new love of running, a new running route or perhaps it has motivated you to embrace a new challenge?

Take on our Home Run this March to have some fun, set yourself a goal and raise much needed money for our patient care.

The challenge

Run 13 miles this March, the average distance a St Luke’s Community Nurse travels in two days, visiting patients across Sheffield to care for them in their own home or nursing home.

Regular runners might go the full distance in one run in place of the Sheffield Half Marathon, others might spread the distance over a few days with shorter runs or even walks. However, you do it, the money you raise will make a huge difference to people across Sheffield who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

For many of our patients, home is where they want to be cared for as it provides familiarity, comfort and reassurance. Our care reaches people across the city, allowing us to give specialist palliative and end of life care to people in their own homes.

Making a huge difference, one mile at a time!

The difference that our community care makes can be anything from helping with pain relief and stabilising medications to delivering tailored food parcels, helping patients to build their strength and feel as well as possible, to help them enjoy precious time with family and friends.

All of our care and support is without charge to those who need it but with government funding covering just 25% of our running costs, we rely on sponsorship money from events like the Home Run to help us raise the remaining £7.5million needed each year.

£50 could contribute to the costs of PPE our nurses need to wear for each visit to patients in their own homes across Sheffield.
 
£100 could contribute towards the costs of a nurse’s travel, visiting patients in their own homes across Sheffield
 
£150 could contribute towards the cost of a rapid response equipment bag needed when our nurses respond to emergency calls.
