Support us at the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon

SHEFFIELD United defender and St Luke’s Hospice Ambassador James Wilson is urging all our supporters to get into training and sign up for the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon.

The popular Half Marathon event returns to Sheffield on Sunday, April 9 and we are aiming to have more competitors taking part than ever before.

And Welsh International player James – one of our keen supporters - wants to see the route become a sea of distinctive St Luke's pink.

“We really need people to join the St Luke’s team and help raise vital funds to help us continue caring for everyone across Sheffield,” James explained.

“As Sheffield United’s Player Ambassador for the charity, I have visited St Luke’s and seen the great work they are doing for people with life limiting illnesses in Sheffield.

“But I also know that they need to raise at least £6.1 million annually to maintain their current levels of service so events like the Half Marathon are extremely important.

“By signing up and getting sponsors you’ll be giving yourself a great challenge but you’ll also cross the finish line knowing that you really have made a difference to the lives of St Luke’s patients and their families.”
