LOROS Hospice calls for thrill-seekers to take on 2022 challenge events

News

LOROS Hospice is challenging adrenaline seekers to push themselves to new limits with an exciting programme of fundraising challenge events for 2022.

From racing to the top of Leicester’s tallest building to plunging from a height of 13,000 feet in a skydive or cycling around Europe, these heart-racing challenges will raise all-important funds for LOROS and provide a much-needed thrill to kickstart the new year.

We are proud to present such a variety of events which means that even more people can join the fun this year.

Launching into 2022 on a high, the LOROS Tower Run is back on Saturday 26th March. With 351 steps to tackle up St George’s Tower, leg burn is guaranteed in this ultimate workout to reach the top.

For those keen to tick a skydive off their bucket list, LOROS are asking daring participants to jump headfirst into supporting their local Hospice. This exhilarating experience will take place on Sunday 27th March.

In partnership with Mattioli Woods, running fanatics and beginners can join LOROS on a 10km run through Leicester’s idyllic village of Rothley on Tuesday 7th June.

There’s also the opportunity to venture out of Leicester with the Euro City Cycle from 7th – 11th September. Getting the balance of long rides and time out of the saddle to explore just right, this is an exciting challenge for all abilities. Cyclists can find themselves weaving through the rolling British countryside, sampling a stroopwafel in Amsterdam and crossing the finish line with a glass of bubbly in Brussels.

The adventure doesn’t stop there as explorers can journey even further to visit a Seventh Wonder in a once-in-a-lifetime trek to Machu Picchu. This 10-day trip will begin in the Inca capital of Cusco and conquer the world-famous trekking trail from 4th – 13th November 2022.

Andrew Ward, Events Lead at LOROS Hospice says: “Challenge events are an absolutely brilliant way to do something different and have an amazing time whilst supporting a local cause.

“We are proud to present such a variety of events which means that even more people can join the fun this year. These events not only allow participants to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences, but also raise crucial funds for LOROS Hospice in caring for terminally ill patients and their families.

“We encourage everybody to push themselves to try something new in 2022.”

Virtual information evenings for the Machu Picchu Inca Trail Trek and Euro City Cycle will take place on Thursday 27th January and Thursday 3rd February respectively. Those interested can book their no-obligation, free place to attend online.

The fundraising efforts and donations of the local community help enable LOROS to provide care for over 2,500 patients and their families each year, making a difference when it matters the most.

The charity has worked hard to ensure that all events are COVID-secure in line with official guidance and best practice health and safety measures, meaning that you can book in confidence.

Chris's amazing art

At LOROS we work hard to ensure our care helps people feel sure of who they are, their likes and dislikes, and how they want to be cared for. Chris, 55, is on our Inpatient Ward and likes drawing pictures. He’s brilliant at it, and as he lies in his bed, it gives him a lot of enjoyment. His skills are even more amazing as he’s only been doing it for a couple of years.
