A Mile a Day

At St Margaret's Hospice we go the extra mile to ensure our patients and their families receive care and support every day of the year.

So, we are challenging our supporters to complete A Mile a Day throughout 2022, this can be done in any way you like, whether that is walking, running, cycling, swimming or dancing - it really doesn't matter! Will you go the extra mile for St Margaret's Hospice?

Make sure to connect your Strava or input the miles you complete manually so you appear on our leaderboard you can also download our progress tracker to keep track of your challenge. 

Our physiotherapy team help patients to manage their breathlessness and improve their quality of life and independence. This could be anything from being able to manage a trip to the shops again to being able to enjoy pottering in the shed at the bottom of the garden, no matter what our patient’s goals are we try to help them meet them.

So, this year we are asking you to set your own goal in walking a mile a day, every day during 2022. Not only will you be raising money to help support the hundreds of patients who will benefit from breathlessness management treatment, but you will improve your own fitness and wellbeing too.

£30 could pay for a breathlessness session, helping our patients control their symptoms and improve their independence.
