Rudy’s Run 2021

Dec - Dec 2021Your School, Club, Pre-school, Nursery or Community Group

Participation cost: Free

Rudy is back again for Christmas 2021. Rudy’s Run gives all children a chance to get involved, dress up and spread a little Christmas cheer.

Register your school, pre-school nursery or community group for ‘Rudy’s Run’ and join in the fun with a run, walk, skip or prance on a date of your choice this December.

Registering for Rudy’s Run is FREE and includes a pair of antlers, a red nose and a digital activity pack for each child and a Santa costume for one lucky adult to help ensure all their little Reindeers enjoy the fun! We will also send a ‘virtual’ assembly so that Rudy and friends can share with you more about this exciting opportunity to have some fun and also help your local Hospice this Christmas.

Rudy’s Run was a huge success last year, and he is back again to inspire everyone to fundraise for St Barnabas this Christmas.

The beauty of Rudy’s Run is that it’s simple and free to register and your school/group will be provided with all you need to make planning the day as easy and hassle-free as possible.

Rudy’s Run isn’t a race, but a chance to run, walk or prance at school, in your garden or at your after-school club to raise vital funds for St Barnabas Hospice in Lincolnshire. We just ask each child to raise £5 to support the Hospice. This can be done by your school/nursery/group setting up a central JustGiving page that everyone can donate to.

About the Hospice
St Barnabas Hospice is renowned for its outstanding end of life care for adults, but they also provide pre and post bereavement support for families too. This invaluable support is free for anyone in Lincolnshire who is struggling with loss, and more work is being done at St Barnabas to create a specialist bereavement service for children as young as five.

Losing a parent, sibling or grandparent can be extremely traumatic for a child and sadly something 1 in 30 children will be going through each day. Rudy’s Run has been designed to promote this service and fundraise to keep this and St Barnabas Hospice’s overall mission ‘to offer compassionate, end of life care’ going throughout the charities toughest year to date.

Participation is completely free of charge. All we ask is that each child tries to raise £5 in sponsorship money to support the work of our Hospice

Spread a little festive cheer with St Barnabas Hospice

When you sign up, Rudy will send you antlers and a red nose for each child, a Santa costume for one lucky teacher/group leader, an exciting assembly video and a digital activity pack filled with games, recipes, crafts and more…
