Do something amazing to support your local NHS hospice and sign up to take part in Get Fit For Forest Holme 2022!

Last year, our amazing team of Get Fit supporters raised almost £20,000 for the patients and families cared for at Forest Holme.

What’s the challenge

Run, walk, skip, hop, cycle, swim, roll or flip, just 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, take on your very own Hospice Hike, set your own cycling challenge, 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. Sign up, have fun and raise what you can to support your local NHS hospice. 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 very special Forest Holme hoodie.

How to sign up

  1. Visit our Get Fit For Forest Holme Fundraising Page.
