We’ve got options for everyone this year!


Join us for the couch to 5k run club which runs across the year for 12 weeks at a time and run your first ever 5k after that. You can also start mapping your miles for St Wilfrid’s if you are a regular runner!


Step up with St Wilfrid’s Hospice for a challenge at your own pace. Our nurses can walk 8000-10,000 steps in a ward shift can you and your friends accept the steps challenge?


Get on your bike and explore the beautiful West Sussex countryside for a pedal power fundraiser.

Do your own challenge

Whether it is pursuing a long-held goal or starting something new to get fit – we’re here to support you to be part of the St Wilfrid’s community. We can all ‘get active’ in one way or another to play a part in supporting vital hospice care. We’ve got ideas to inspire and support you, so get involved today! 

Tell us about your plans/ideas

You’re not on your own if you want to do something challenging – give us a call and get some advice from us – and get a free St Wilfrid’s t-shirt to wear for your challenge. 

Keep it simple

Remember from little acorns great oaks grow! If it’s your first physical challenge then start small, and ask advice or read best advice on how to train online. We might have an expert or two we know that can provide you with advice so get in touch with us if you need that kind of support.

Fix a goal and a date

You could aim to walk 100,000 steps in a month, or complete a marathon in a day. It is up to you how long you take to achieve your goal. Define it and let people know what your aim is. They will want to sponsor and support you. 

Ask for help or get a buddy 

Some things are more fun when you have friends, family and/or work colleagues to help you or keep you company. If you are planning to walk 100,000 steps in a month why not ask different friends to join you on some of your walks?


Here’s where you will find useful stuff like sponsorship forms, guides to virtual events and how to write a press release about your exciting Get Active fundraiser!
