Rudolph Run

‘Tis the season to have some festive fun and raise funds for your local hospice! Our Rudolph Run is back for 2022, and we are inviting local schools and community groups to get involved with this fundraiser.

What is Rudolph Run?

The idea of our Rudolph Run is simple – get dressed up as a reindeer and take part in a sponsored walk or run. You choose the date, time and distance – so do what works best for you! To make things even easier, we will provide antlers and red noses for the children participating and a Santa suit for one lucky adult.

After you’ve collected your funds, your school or organisation can choose whether to give 100% of the donations to the hospice or keep 50% for your organisation. 

Why take part?

As a charity, the hospice needs to raise £2.5 million each year to provide our specialist compassionate care. Fundraisers like our Rudolph Run bring together our community and help us with our fundraising mission.

Last year, the Rudolph Run raised a staggering £30,000 thanks to everyone involved. To put that into perspective, that is the equivalent of funding one of our nurses for a whole year. 

So, we hope you will take part and make a real difference to what we do here at the hospice.

“We took part in the Rudolph Run to raise money for a charity that is close to our hearts. Barnsley Hospice has provided great care to many of our family members and friends and we wanted to give something back as a thank you for all that they do.”

Mrs Dobson, Headteacher at Holy Rood Catholic Primary School
