Step up for a charity run challenge and help seriously ill children at Wexham Park Hospital get the best possible care.
There’s less than five weeks to go until Frimley Health Charity’s annual Run Wexham event on Sunday 17 July - a sponsored 10km trail race and 2.8km fun run raising money for the Slough hospital.
Now organisers have issued a rallying call for as many people as possible to sign up and take part.
All proceeds from this year’s event will go to the charity’s Children’s Critical Care Appeal.
The money will be used to equip a five-bed children’s critical care unit with family accommodation currently being built at Wexham Park.
The main race and the fun run will both start and finish at the hospital, taking participants across picturesque farmland.
There will be awards for the winners, a medal for every finisher and a prize for the best children’s fancy dress.
Janet King, director of HR and corporate services at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Wexham Park, said: “The children’s ward at Wexham admits an average of 10 children each week with life-threatening conditions.
“These can range from breathing difficulties to cancer and critical injuries.
“By signing up to Run Wexham and collecting sponsorship, you will be helping to provide state-of-the-art equipment to support these very ill children, many with complex problems, who need to stay in the hospital.”
