10k For Nurses 2019

We are a proud supporter of Cavell Nurses' Trust, a nursing charity dedicated to supporting UK nurses suffering from financial hardship. As supporters of this very worthy organisation, we are delighted to be campaign champions for the Cavell Nurses' Trust's #10kForNurses.  

What is #10kForNurses?

#10kForNurses is an annual event that takes place throughout October. Inspirational fundraisers take on a variety of 10k challenges, all in the name of charity. The ultimate goal of the #10kForNurses challenge is to raise life-changing funds to transform the lives of UK nursing professionals in hardship.

How can I take part in 10kForNurses?

Whether you run, walk, swim, bake or even give your time to do something selfless and amazing, there is a 10k for absolutely everyone. 

Here are some ideas of how you can hit the 10k mark:

  • Walk 10k - Gather your friends, family and colleagues and embark on a special 10k walk or join Cavell Nurses' Trust's Snowdon challenge
  • Rack up the steps - Put those fitness trackers and pedometres to good use and push yourself to reach 10,000 steps every day throughout October
  • Run 10k - Lace-up your trainers and challenge yourself to reach the 10k mark
  • Skydive from 10k feet - Available at a host of locations throughout the UK, this is ideal for anyone who has always wanted to experience the thrill of freefalling from 10,000 feet, and if you raise the minimum fundraising target for your location, you can jump for free
  • 10k seconds of exercise  - Pop on your dancing shoes and boogie on down for 10,000 seconds or Zumba your way to the magical mark
  • Host your own 10k event - Your fundraising efforts don't necessarily have to be physical; you could host a bake sale or organise a pub quiz instead

However you choose to fundraise, remember that your efforts are making a huge difference to nursing professionals across the country.  

#10kForNurses 2019

#10ForNurses 2019 was a tremendous success and raised an incredible sum of money.

And a special mention to all of the intrepid walkers who conquered Mount Snowdon

About Cavell Nurses' Trust

Cavell Nurses' Trust is a charity that supports UK nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, both working and retired, when they're suffering personal or financial hardship often due to illness, disability, older age and domestic abuse.

From simple, essential support like money to repair a broken cooker or boiler, to vital life-changing aid like helping a family flee home due to domestic abuse, Cavell Nurses' Trust is here to help. This year, over 2,800 nursing professionals will ask for help from Cavell Nurses' Trust.

How your donations help nurses in need

Did you know that just £100 can cover essential bills for a nurse suffering from cancer and give hope when it feels like there is nowhere to turn? How about £250, which can help a midwife struggling to heat their home in the winter months? Or £1,000, a sum of money that can help secure a new home for a nurse and their children fleeing domestic abuse, allowing them to feel safe and secure? 

Last year, 3,300 nursing professionals sought support from Cavell Nurses' Trust; that's nine every single day. With your help, Cavell Nurses' Trust can help all of these brave nurses through their hardship.
