Run, walk, skip or even swim!

Run for Heroes have extended their latest challenge to all charities by turning the month of May into a celebration of physical activity with their 5kMay campaign. Everyone is invited to take part, including Sussex Community NHS Charity supporters.

As the name suggests, it’s all about getting fit and hitting that 5km target. It’s not just about running though - you could walk, roll, skip or even swim your 5 kilometers if you wish! All that matters is getting your body moving and raising vital funds for charity by making a £5 donation to your charity of choice. 

With famous faces like Mo Farah, Ellie Goulding and even Prime Minister Boris Johnson backing previous Run For Heroes challenges, you may even spot a celebrity while out on your 5kMay journey.

Why raise funds for Sussex Community NHS Charity?

The money raised will help us make grants to SCFT for the things core funding cannot buy, the big and little extras that help our amazing staff continue to provide our patients with truly outstanding care.

Every penny raised can help us enhance patient care by funding:

  • Improving the physical and mental health of patients, staff and volunteers;
  • Supporting staff development to help them provide excellent care;
  • Improving the equipment and facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of our patients;
  • Creating patient and family-friendly care environments;
  • Advancing our understanding through medical research
