Catherine’s Festive Fun Run 2023: A Heartwarming Tribute with a Fundraising Spirit

The annual Catherine’s Festive Fun Run, set to take place on December 10th, 2023, is more than just a run—it’s a celebration of love, memory, and a heartfelt commitment to a noble cause. This event holds a special place in the hearts of many, including Colin Groves, who has embarked on a remarkable fundraising journey in memory of his beloved wife, Catherine.

Colin Groves’ Fundraiser for St Cuthbert’s Hospice

Colin Groves is not only a participant in Catherine’s Festive Fun Run but also a passionate fundraiser for St Cuthbert’s Hospice. His determination to make a difference in honour of his wife is truly inspiring. Colin’s fundraising efforts have already made a significant impact, with £205 raised out of a £500 target, thanks to the generous support of 17 individuals.

Supporting St Cuthbert’s Hospice

St Cuthbert’s Hospice holds a special place in the Groves family’s heart, as it provided exceptional care and support to Catherine during her battle with Breast Cancer. The hospice became a haven of compassion and comfort during Catherine’s final weeks, leaving an indelible mark on the family.

A Meaningful Tribute to Catherine

As the 5th anniversary of Catherine’s passing approaches, Colin, along with his children, Ethan and Kara, invites you to join them in Catherine’s Festive Fun Run. It’s a day to run, walk, hop, skip, or crawl in Blackhill and Consett Park—a place that holds cherished memories for the family.

Fun for a Good Cause

After the run, participants can enjoy a piece of cake and a hot drink. The event will also feature opportunities to buy coffee, teas, cakes, and bakes, all for a donation. And don’t forget the exciting raffle with fantastic prizes and the possibility of a visit from Santa himself!

Making a Difference Together

Catherine’s Festive Fun Run is not just about physical activity; it’s about coming together as a community and making a positive impact. Colin and his family, along with the support of countless others, are determined to ensure that St Cuthbert’s Hospice can continue to provide exceptional care to those in need.

Support the Cause
