Looking for a fun challenge to take part in as a way to keep fit whilst fundraising for your local NHS hospitals?

Try our brand new virtual challenge!

Challenge yourself to walk, jog, swim or cycle the distances between the hospitals we support over 1 month.

Choose from one of the four distances below, and then the rest is up to you!

Ipswich Hospital to Colchester Hospital: 20 miles / 33km / 44,882 steps

Essex Sites: 33 miles / 53km / 74,055 steps

Suffolk Sites: 45 miles / 73km / 100,985 steps

All Sites: 83 miles / 134 km / 186,260 steps

Take care of your friends and family when they need you most

You’ll have 1 month from when you sign up to complete your challenge.

It’s free to register and there’s no minimum fundraising target to take part, but we recommend setting it at £100 to give yourself a challenge.

We would love for your fundraising to support our Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity Fund which supports patients and staff when they need us most. Alternatively you can choose to fundraise for one of our current appeals: Cancer Wellbeing, Children’s Appeal, Staff Wellbeing or for the ward or department within our services closest to your heart.  Just let us know your preference when you sign up.

£5 could help us buy new items for the play areas throughout the new Children's Department

£10 could help to support counselling services so that people with cancer can receive additional information and support

£20 could help us fund our butterfly volunteer services supporting people at end of life when loved ones can't be near

£50 could help us pay for the very latest specialist medical equipment to improve patient care
