    Back by popular demand, we are challenging you to walk, row, run, cycle, or swim either 100km or 100 miles for our 100 Days of Summer Virtual Race!


    Whether you go the distance on gym equipment, in the water or the great outdoors, you will have 100 days from 21st June to complete the race in your own time!

    This event is a great way to join #TeamMyton without having to commit to a specific date and location – or one single discipline! We are keeping our fingers crossed for some beautiful summer sunshine, so why not make the most of the better weather by getting out and active?

    As well as covering 100km or 100 miles we’re challenging you to raise at least £100 for Myton – just £1 a day for the duration of the Virtual Race!

    How will we know you’ve gone the distance?


    Simply fill in the ‘completed distance’ form and attach screenshots or pictures from whichever app or device you have recorded your distance on. You can also share your Virtual Race journey on social media with #TeamMyton. Get out there and enjoy yourself!

    Lisa Sharratt took up the challenge last year as a way of keeping herself motivated to run! The Virtual race started on her mum’s 90th birthday and finished 10 days after her own birthday!


    She said: “I needed something to challenge me, whilst raising funds for a fabulous cause! I knew if I could raise £1 per day then I would achieve my goal!

    Over the years Myton has supported many friends and family – I appreciate how wonderful it is. I believe supporting your local hospice is vital!

     

    The money Lisa and her fellow #TeamMyton members raised last year means more people like Colin can access our services earlier on in their diagnosis:


    When I saw the look on my GP’s face I knew immediately that I had cancer for the third time.

    The third time was vastly different as the cancer had now spread to my left femur. I had a metal rod inserted into the bone to strengthen it. This was followed by a course of immunotherapy drugs and radiotherapy.

    During the radiotherapy, I was in so much unexplained pain that I could not move. I was taken into hospital, but soon realised I was giving the doctors a few headaches as my condition was spread across various medical disciplines.

    Then a Macmillan nurse suggested a new pain relief regime and referred me to Warwick Myton Day Hospice and over the following days the pain was noticeably easing.

    As I shuffled on my walking frame into Myton for my trial visit I found myself in tears. Then a supportive arm came around my shoulders and suddenly I felt that others knew my frustrations and understood my emotions.

    Through my weekly visits I feel the supportive Myton arm around my shoulders even more strongly than I did that first day. They’ve been supportive to me both physically and emotionally and all with a sense of fun and humour.”
