Pilgrims Hospices, Official Charity for ' Miles and Barr’ Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Race

Pilgrims Hospices has been chosen as the recipient charity for the Fosters ' Miles and Barr’ Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Coastal Road Race' to be held on December 7th 2014.  This bracing run along the coast in Thanet is a very popular race and normally sees its 500 places sell out very quickly.

£1 from every entry will be donated to The Pigrims Hospices. Pilgrims Hospices is a charity providing palliative care free of charge to people in East Kent. The charity cares for patients with a range of terminal illnesses including cancer, heart failure, respiratory conditions and neurological diseases. Care is provided at its three sites in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet, in patients' homes and via community programmes. Care is also extended to families and carers. 

John Hunt, Race Director for the race said, ‘I chose Pilgrims Hospices as the recipient charity as it’s very close to my heart.  I have firsthand experience of the amazing work they do in the most difficult of times, the care and support they provide has helped so many families in Thanet. As our chosen charity they will receive at least £1 from every entry received so let’s make this race a sell-out!!!
