Melanie's 30 Half Marathons in 30 Days
From June 1 to June 30 Melanie Sturman will be running a half marathon everyday to raise funds and awareness for St Nic's
During the month of June, Melanie Sturman will be clocking up the miles for St Nicholas Hospice Care (393 of them) as she challenges herself to run (and sometimes walk) a half marathon every day of the month.
Melanie said: “As a nurse, I have worked throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and I am aware that St Nicholas Hospice Care has been unable to raise funds themselves.
“Financial support is required to provide support to palliative patients in the hospice and at home.”
Support Melanie on Justgiving
Join Melanie for some of her miles
To help her along the way Melanie is hoping people will join her (virtually) by completing some miles themselves too.
This could be walking or running, so if you can support Melanie, please do, and let us know how you get on as we’d love to share your achievement.
We’d like to thank everyone who has already pledged to get involved.
Raising awareness of our services, people and fundraisers
Melanie has also decided, that as well as raising funds for St Nic’s she also wants to raise awareness of our support and services, staff and volunteers, and her fellow fundraisers
Each day Melanie will be sharing a post on her social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) that depicts a little bit more about the Hospice and the work it does across West Suffolk and Thetford.
We’ll also be sharing Melanie’s journey, and using this page to share more about some of the Hospice’s services and support, and the people behind them that Melanie is highlighting.
