Rainbow Run 2023

On the 23rd of June I was honoured to sponsor the Rainbow Run, an event held by the East & North Hertfordshire Charity. They fund the very best medical equipment, research, training and facilities for our patients. Donations have meant purchases of highly advanced equipment for urology, maternity, emergency care and cancer services.

More than £32,000 has been raised. The event took place at Ridlins Athletics Stadium. Over 400 people took part in the family-friendly run with the youngest entrant being just under two years old.

Beth McNeil, head of fundraising for East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity, said: “Thank you so much to everyone who came along and supported our second Rainbow Run. It was a brilliant, fun-filled day and we’re thrilled to have raised over £32,000 to fund projects across all our hospitals.

From the neonatal bedrooms and children’s ward garden appeals to projects supporting our patients living with dementia, we’ve had runners raising funds for nearly every area of the hospital. It’s been lovely to hear their stories and see everyone supporting our wonderful NHS. We can’t wait for next year! We would like to thank our fantastic sponsors: Avocado Property, Walter Cooper, Raymond James, Shires Funeral Directors, Caremark Stevenage and North Herts, HR Initiatives and Extreme Scaffolding. Thank you all so much for helping us put on such a great event.”
