The Flintshire 10k run takes place today, Sunday 12 October 2014
The 3k Fun Run will start at 11am and the 10k at 12noon both starting and finishing at Mold Sports Centre, Wrexham Road, Mold, CH7 1EP.
All monies raised from this exciting challenge will go directly to Nightingale House funding palliative care services, completely free of charge.
Nightingale House Hospice provides specialist palliative care services, completely free of charge, to people across Wrexham, Flintshire, East Denbighshire, the A494 corridor to Barmouth, and the borders, including Oswestry, Ellesmere, Wem and Whitchurch.
In 2014 it will cost more than £2.6 million to run the Hospice – this equates to more than £7,200 per day. Since only 19% of this comes from the Local Health Board, it is only enough funding to support the Hospice for 69 days, the hospice therefore greatly relies on the generosity of the communities it serves to raise the additional funding for the remaining 296 days of the year.
