PAGE CREATOR: Hospice Hobblers
EVENT: Coastal Challenge
EVENT DATE: 25/02/2012

In a moment of weakness Carol suggested that to celebrate being the Charity Partner for the Coastal Challenge, we enter a team - then she conned the rest of us to signing up without really telling us what we were signing up for.

The "Hospice Hobblers" is made up of Hospice staff - Carol Herbert, Gaynor Larsen & Lynn Kenyon from Fundraising, Dianna Lints, our Office Manager and one very brave Social Worker, Matthew Luxon.

We have discovered our youth has gone and our bodies are rebelling, so we have called in the big guns and have brought Bridgete Lal from Tomfit on board, to try and whip us into shape before 25th Feb

We will be competing (and I do use that term loosely) in the 33km Relay of the Coastal Challenge - a 33km run from Arkles Bay to Devonport - all along our beautiful coast. No roads and lots of water. We're not planning to finish in a flash time....we're just planning to finish. We're pretty sure that it won't be pretty, but it should be fun

We will all be putting in the hard yards training, but we also want to raise funds to support our patients and their families.

Please could you sponsor us?
