FESTIVE FELLSIDE – VIRTUAL SANTA DASH
We are excited to announce that Fellside Homes are sponsoring and taking part in the CancerCare Virtual Santa Dash! Between the 9th November and 20th December Fellside Homes will be running, walking, cycling, swimming or rowing as miles as possible as a team! CancerCare and everyone taking part are aiming to cover a combined distance of 1,347 miles which is the distance (as the reindeer flies) from Santa’s home in Lapland to Lancaster.
All the miles pledged will be deducted from our official Santa “Dashometer” totaliser as we aim to get him, and his eagerly-awaited sack of presents, to the children we support in time for the big day.
The 1,347 miles is significant as it is the same as the number of therapy sessions CancerCare delivered to youngsters whose lives have been turned upside down by the impact of cancer and bereavement in their families between August ’19 and ’20.
CancerCare provide a wide range of free professional therapies for people affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Their therapies are delivered by qualified and highly experienced practitioners who help families come to terms with, and manage, the challenges of a serious health condition. Every penny raised by this Christmassy event will go towards the services they provide in our local area, something we know so many families are supported by.
We will keep you all update over the 6 weeks on our progress and miles, we are sure its going to be great fun and keep us fit in lockdown!
