Join #TeamStGiles to make a difference in a month
As part of Katie’s Appeal, we’d love you to join #TeamStGiles and run, walk or cycle over 30 days!
No matter what your age or fitness level, Miles 4 St Giles is the perfect fundraising event for everyone – why not start the new year by getting fit, having fun and raising vital funds?
Choose to complete the suggested miles, or your own distance, however and whenever you like. But be sure to raise sponsorship as you go!
You’ll make a massive difference in a month to the lives of local people, and their families, living with a terminal illness. Plus, you could earn yourself some St Giles goodies too! What are you waiting for? Sign up now!
Walk: 30 miles
Do a mile a day outdoors or even on a treadmill. You’ll be surprised how many ways you can walk 30 miles in a month (or further if you fancy!)
Run: 60 miles
Up your pace outdoors, or turn up the speed on your treadmill! Tackle 2 miles a day or set your own distance if 60 miles isn’t quite challenging enough for you.
Cycle: 90 miles
Static bike, electric bike or traditional pedal power! Take on the challenge of 3 miles a day for 30 days or set your own distance.
Triathlon: 180 miles
Really want to challenge yourself?
Combine all 3 challenges and take on a Triathlon!
Get sponsored and get rewarded
When you reach significant milestones in your fundraising journey, you’ll achieve new rewards! Whether you’re taking on the challenge as an adult or junior (16 and under), your rewards will build up and be posted to you on completion of your challenge, so be sure to keep us up to date with your progress. Our team will be with you every step (or pedal) of the way. Good luck!
Please note: All rewards are achieved on an individual basis.
Spread the word to find your sponsors
When you sign up to take part in Miles 4 St Giles, you’ll receive a digital fundraising pack, giving you plenty of tips and advice to help you raise as much as possible. There’s plenty of ways to fundraise online, including JustGiving or via Facebook. More about these in your pack.
It takes a community to make a hospice and we’ve never needed you more than we need you today! Thank you.
St Giles has never needed your help more than it needs it today
You will no doubt have seen over the last few months that St Giles is facing some of the toughest times in its history.
My wife, Sue, died at St Giles in March just days after England went into national lockdown as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
It’s only thanks to your kindness that St Giles Hospice was able to give Sue and me the care and support we needed at the end of her life.
Although the community has come together, their income has been significantly affected and it costs £850,000 every single month for the hospice to keep their services going.
By taking part in Miles 4 St Giles and raising sponsorship too, you’re helping to ensure that St Giles can continue to be here for more people like Sue and me.
There is no way we would have coped without their support. Thank you so much.
