Chris’s Family Marathon for St Luke’s Hospice

Jan 18, 2021 | 2021 News Stories

“St Luke’s Hospice is a local charity that makes a big difference to the families it supports, and AMS (Advanced Medical Solutions) has regularly been involved in fundrasing for them. As with many charities, they have been facing challenges with fundrasing this year, so we wanted to do what we could to help.

The girls did a great job running, it’s the furthest Amy has ever run and Hannah has only done that distance once before so it was a great effort from them.

Chris Weeks and his family raised over £450 for St Luke’s Hospice by running a family Marathon.

We couldn’t be prouder of Chris Weeks and his family for taking on a huge challenge to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice in Cheshire. Chris, UK Financial Controller for Advanced Medical Solutions, wife Caroline and their two daughters Hannah (age 7) and Amy (age 4) ran a marathon between them in an impressive 3 hours and 50 minutes, an incredible achievement!

Chris and his family took on the challenge as part of The Great Hospice Pudding Day. The Great Hospice Pudding Day was a new event for St Luke’s Hospice this year and was created to help raise vital funds for patient care through live and virtual events.

Participants were invited to sign up to complete walks or runs with a Christmas Pudding theme or to set their own challenges. Setting themselves the challenge of running a marathon between them, Chris ran 13 miles, Caroline ran 8.2 miles while Hannah and Amy, their two daughters ran an amazing 5 miles between them.

Chris and his family have successfully raised over £450 for the hospice, but there is still an opportunity to sponsor them and support St Lukes Hospice. Follow our link below to their Just Giving page where you can find out more.

St Luke’s Hospice

Since 1998, St Luke’s Hospice has been providing palliative care to local people, supporting them in ways which go beyond the scope and funding of the NHS. Today, donations are as important as ever and around 85% of hospice care is made possible thanks to the support of fundraisers like Chris and his family.
