Get involved in our Snowflake challenge this Christmas and make the new year brighter for Sheffield Children’s Hospital


It’s halfway through December, and time is running out, running out, running out…

But we’re not too worried, because with two more weeks to go until our deadline, we have already met our two month mission target – to raise 1,876 in money and miles for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Excitingly, we’ve raised £2650.00, and collectively travelled 1,924 miles!

Feet have pounded almost 1,200 miles, with 458 of them walked and 736 run by a whole host of team members and their friends and family. 268 of those lovely miles were run by Daiga, our interim Head of Parkinson’s Academy and her husband, who have well and truly earned their mince pies this year.

703 of our miles have been cycled, with a huge thanks to our MD Sarah and her family for their 182, and our Media Administrator Emily and her wider family, who racked up a whopping 511 miles on bike or foot.

A final 7.5 miles of swimming gives a mini-boost to the mileage, much of it done outside in a flooded quarry by our health writer Charlie.

Get involved

With just two weeks to go, we invite you to seek some fresh air, burn off that tub of chocolates, or go for a happy socially-distanced cycle with those you love – and then log the miles on our Snowflake calculator…!

Alternatively, perhaps you would like to give a gift to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and support their work for the new year via our JustGiving page.
