Mums on the Run Sponsorship Page
We are a group of busy Mums with a shared love of running, hence our team name ‘Mums on the Run’. Two of our team of five have experienced first hand the support services that Jersey Hospice Care provides, so we have signed up for a selection of running events in order to raise funds for this amazing charity.
- 3 of us have signed up for the Jayson Lee 10k in August
- 3 of our team are running the Spartan half marathon in September
- 2 of us are taking part in the Super League Triathlon end of September
- All 5 of us are running a relay team in the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon this October
In 2015, Clare lost her Mum to cancer, and Jersey Hospice Care were there to provide support for the whole family, firstly as an out patient, and then in the In Patient Unit at Clarkson House for her last two weeks. It was such a precious time for the family, and were very grateful to have this space to be together. Four years later, Clare’s Dad was also cared for in the In Patient Unit for nearly two weeks before he died on Christmas Day 2018 as a result of stomach cancer.
Another member of our crew, Dominique, also lost her step father in December 2018. Dominique, her step father and the rest of her family benefited from the out-patient support services before he died, and continued to receive their support for some months after.
Both Clare and Dominique feel passionately grateful to Jersey Hospice Care for the support their families received when they needed it most, and are supported by three of their wonderful Mummy friends to get out there and run in order to raise much needed funds for this amazing local charity.
Thanks in advance for sponsoring us with our running challenges this year; every penny is appreciated xxx
