Why should you put on your running shoes for Helen & Douglas House?

Your participation in The Reading Half Marathon is going to make a real difference to us – we care for terminally ill children, young adults and their families through exceptional hospice care. It costs over £5 million a year to run the two hospice houses and provide our outreach nursing service, we cannot do this without your help!

We provide medical, emotional and practical support helping families deal with the implications of living with a child who will die prematurely, so they can make the most of their time together.
