Sheffield Half Marathon Charities
St Luke's Hospice:- St Luke's cares for adults of all ages throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. Our aim is always to control their symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge. We depend on the commitment and generosity of our supporters to help us raise enough money to keep on providing top quality care for our patients and their families. This year alone we need to raise more than £4 million towards our running costs; and to continue to improve the quality of our services and patient care we need to raise more. Every year we help and support more than 1400 patients, and their families and carers throughout the city.
Join our Sheffield Half Marathon running team and we will support you every step of the way.

Support Dogs:- If you run to raise money for Support Dogs every stride you take goes towards changing a life. You're lucky enough to be able to run - the people we help can't. Their disability prevents it and they lead lives we can't imagine. But Support Dogs can massively improve their lives by training the companions that give them greater freedom, confidence and independence. They need us and we need you to lace up your trainers, and run for a Sheffield-based charity that is changing lives daily. That's got to be worth the odd blister or two. Tel: 0114 2617800.
