To raise money for St. Rocco’s Hospice which cares for people with life-limiting illnesses in Warrington. We support patients at the hospice through our inpatient and day unit facilities and in the community through our Hospice at Home service. We also look after patients' families through our Family Support service.

Our care is provided free of care to patients, but less than a quarter of our costs are covered by the NHS and the Government. As a registered charity we rely on donations from our community and fundraising to enable us to continue to deliver our care. So taking part in the Great Manchester Run and raising sponsorship is a great way to help us to continue to care for those in the Warrington area who need us.
