This week is the last chance to book your place at the discounted rate for Katharine House Hospice’s brand new 2017 event, the Neon Night Fun Run.

Taking place this Saturday 10th June 2017 on Stafford Common, participants will be able to run, dance, skip or walk 4 miles around Stafford, lighting up the night skies as they go in the county town’s very first event of this kind.

The evening will kick off at 7:45pm with music and dancing as well as a Clubbercise warm up party with Nikki Witty (Clubbercise Instructor) who will really get things going before the fun run begins. There will also be stilt walkers, a neon face-painter, fresh artisan pizza, gourmet coffees and neon goodies available to buy! Adding to the fun, there will be a prize for the best-dressed fun runner and every finisher will receive an official neon technical t-shirt, a neon finishers medal and a neon sweat wrist band.

Katharine House Hospice Events Fundraiser, Lisa Carson said “We are really thrilled with the overwhelming response to our brand new event which is going to be a fabulous night!  We have already sold almost 500 places, so with just 100 places left we urge people to book their place before the event to guarantee they won’t miss out.”

Places can be booked at by midday on Thursday  or by calling 01785 270808 during office hours by midday on Friday. If there are still places available you can turn up on the night, although we cannot guarantee your place, and the price will increase by £5 per person.

Katharine House Hospice provides free care and support for adults and their families who are coping with progressive illness across mid-Staffordshire. It relies upon the kindness of the local community to help generate over 75% of the funds needed to run its vital range of services.
