Instead of our usual challenge to complete a specific long distance route as a virtual run, this year we are to undertake a multi-discipline challenge to run, bike & swim throughout the coming year as an Olympic Triathlon, each month when we don't have a big run. The Olympic Triathlon will consist of us each doing a 1.5km swim, 40km bike & 10km run. In addition to this we will continue to enter various half marathons, 10km & 5km runs which include the prestigious GREAT NORTH RUN in September and the annual Worksop Half Marathon.
Bluebell Wood have to raise a massive 90% of funds to keep their Charity going with only 10% provided by the Government each year. It costs over £4 million a year to keep the Hospice open.
Currently they are supporting over 250 families from across the region in both their Hospice and the Community, and are one of only 53 Children's Hospices in the Country.
Offering care and support to parents and their children with a shortened life expectancy they give families the gift of time with their children to create unforgettable memories.
As part of their care they offer short breaks, end of life treatment and care, emergency admission, counselling, home visits and activity therapy sessions. These are just a few of the wide ranging care services they provide.
Through your sponsorship we are helping them to provide the much needed help and support which families need during the hardest times they will ever have to face.

After visiting the Hospice on many occasions we have had the opportunity to see what a truly amazing job they all do and how they rely so much on all the help and support from people like ourselves and you.
If you would like to follow us on our journey for 2019 there will be regular updates on our blog on our Facebook page and this site (you can find us on Facebook by searching for Al Nic Jo).
Thankyou for taking the time to read our story. Any sponsorship/donations is so gratefully appreciated.
