What impact will this have?

  • Helping our event participants feel valued and supported after months of hard work training and fundraising. The event is aiming to raise funds to support the work of the hospital, and giving participants a great on the day experience helps to motivate them to fundraise even after they have completed the event.
  • Represent GOSH a large-scale weekend event, spreading the word of the great work of the charity and helping to raise our profile in the running community, in turn helping us to recruit more participants in future years.
  • Connecting with participants' friends and families, ensuring they too feel valued as GOSH supporters.
