Elf Run

Friday 1st December 2023

A St. Rocco's Elf Run is the perfect Christmas activity!

A St. Rocco's Elf Run is the perfect Christmas activity as it's not only an excellent way to keep the children active, but it's great for engaging them in fundraising and how they can make an immediate difference to their local Hospice.

St. Rocco's Hospice relies heavily on the support of the local Warrington community. Fundraising activities in schools and nurseries play a valuable part in helping us to increase our funding so that we can continue caring for those affected with life-limiting illnesses. We had 5,162 elves running for St. Rocco's in 2022, and they raised over £20,000. Let’s see if we can reach £6,000 Elves in 2023!  

You can hold your Elf Run whenever best fits in with your timetable, and it simply couldn't be easier to organise:


How to organise your Elf Run

Once you sign up, each school/nursery will receive…

  • Free elf hat for each child
  • A sponsor form for each child is printed on an A5 peel-and-seal envelope so that collecting the sponsor money is easy for both teachers and parents.
  • Alternatively, your school/Nursery can set up An Elf Run Justgiving page, and the money will come straight to us.
  • Copy of a letter to send out to parents - encouraging sponsorship and explaining why your support helps St. Rocco's to continue to be here for those who need our care.
  • A member of the Fundraising Team to speak at one of your assemblies - to introduce Elf Run and explain how their fundraising will help the Hospice.

Your Elf Run can take place anytime around Christmas to suit your timetable, and you set the distance for the pupils to run.
