Get Fit For Forest Holme

Take on our fundraising challenge that will improve your physical and mental health whilst raising money to support your local NHS hospice.

What’s the challenge – Run, walk, skip, hop, cycle, swim, roll or flip – get physical & get those endorphins pumping. You set the challenge; a goal according to your fitness level at a time that suits you. You could challenge yourself to run 5K each week for a month, walk the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) in a week, set your own cycling challenge inspired by the Tour de France; the Tour de Poole! Or show off your moves and have a 2 hour, 12 hour or 24 hour danceathon. 

Your Fundraising – You set your own challenge and your own fundraising target. So just sign up and raise what you can. Everyone who takes part will receive a very special Get Fit For Forest Holme medal. 

As an extra little incentive if you raise over £500 we will send you a very special Forest Holme hoodie.

How to sign up – It’s super easy!

  • Visit our Get Fit For Forest Holme Fundraising Page
  • Click on the ‘Start Fundraising’ button. 
  • Set your challenge and set up your fundraising page. 

We will be notified when your page is set up and will be in touch and on hand to support you with your challenge and help you raise as much as possible for Forest Holme Hospice.

You can track the miles for your challenge by linking Strava with your JustGiving account. It’s easy to do and we have put together a ‘how to’ to help you along the way.

Why we need your support: Forest Holme Hospice Charity is expecting a funding deficit of £350,000 due to the impact of Coronavirus. We know a lot of people have struggled mentally & physically since the start of the pandemic, so we want to get our local community active to improve everyone’s physical and mental health and help the charity alongside that.

So what are you waiting for, get your kit on and Get Fit For Forest Holme! Sign up now!

We would love to have you involved in this new fundraising challenge. If you have any questions at all, please get in touch by emailing charlie.james@forestholmehospice.org.uk

Do something amazing for Forest Holme Hospice and take part in our next charity Wing Walk day.

Flying with some of the most experienced pilots in the country at speeds of up to 130mph on a Boeing Stearman, the adrenaline fuelled flight is organised by the Wing Walk Company, who are regarded as the modern day equivalent of the Barnstorming Pioneers, who would have travelled the country in the 20’s and 30’s as part of a flying circus.

To sign up there is an entry fee of £50 to secure your place and we are asking everyone who takes part to pledge to raise a minimum of £800 in sponsorship to support Forest Holme Hospice.

May 27 / 28 / 29

July 1 / 2 / 3

September 2 / 3 / 4
