St Teresa’s Inflatable Colour Run Challenge – Completed!

Colour Run Challenge

On Sunday 14th July, Marketing Assistant, Zoe James and Finance Assistant, Claire Atherton, took on the Inflatable Colour Run Challenge for St Teresa’s Hospice!

Hosted at Longfield Academy in Darlington, the duo – who were also joined by Zoe’s sister and Claire’s daughter – tackled the 10 inflatable obstacle course whilst being covered in bright powder paint.

Starting with a warm-up from Snap Fitness, the team ran (and sometimes walked) to each obstacle around the playing field. The obstacles included hurdles to jump over, tunnels to crawl through and finishing with a slide that required the team to climb up before the final stretch to the finish line.

Heritage Healthcare has been an avid supporter of St Teresa’s Hospice for over 17 years. The Annual Charity Golf Day has raised to date in excess of £220,000 and will take place again for the 18th year on 6th September. The team have also taken part in the ‘It’s a Knockout’ challenge with St Teresa’s Hospice in Summer 2017.

St Teresa’s Hospice is a fantastic charity, providing palliative and end-of-life care for residents of South Durham and North Yorkshire and their families. They help anyone with a life-threatening illness which is no longer responding to curative treatments and provide high-quality holistic support with dignity and comfort.

Over recent years, St Teresa’s Hospice has funded a purpose-built in-patient unit which has seen over 200 patient admissions since opening three years ago. It offers a full service of complimentary, feel-good and counselling therapies and an innovative rapid response nursing team which respond within one hour of a call to patients at home. During last year’s Charity Golf Day, Chief Executive of St Teresa’s Hospice Jane Bradshaw announced the charity had become the first hospice in the region, and one of the first in the country, to be added to the national 999/111 Directory of Services.

Well done the team for taking on the challenge and thank you to everyone who donated and supported them – we can’t wait for the next challenge!
