In honour of the 70th birthday of the NHS we are delighted to present the official NHS70 virtual run!
This not for profit event was the brainchild of the mighty #TeamLGT, a running group of over 100 Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust staff, of all abilities, and from all different NHS roles and backgrounds.
The running group started as part of Trusts’ staff health and wellbeing programme. The team have since gone on to take part in events all over the country and helped guide its beginners group from couch to 5k and on to half marathon distance.
We believe that activity is a great way to improve your general health and wellbeing, spend time with friends and family and be a great role model to colleagues and our families and thought that a virtual run would be a fantastic way to share this and raise vital funds for NHS Charities.
The NHS has touched millions of lives around the UK since it started in 1948 and this is a great way to show how much you appreciate it, and the people whose dedication make it so special.
NHS Charities Together will ensure that any funds raised will be distributed across the whole of the UK.
Will you join us to run or walk 7.0 kilometers or 7.0 miles to celebrate 70 wonderful years of the NHS?
Medals for this virtual run will be sent out from September 2018 onwards.
