Welcome to HomeRun for the Hospice, an exciting virtual challenge that helps support ACCORD Hospice! This January, we're inviting you to lace up your running shoes and commit to walking, running, or jogging 31 miles throughout the month.

How It Works

  • Set Your Goal: The default challenge is to cover 31 miles in January. However, you can set your own distance goal if you prefer—whether it's more or less than 31 miles, every step counts!

  • Track Your Progress: Use your favourite fitness app, smartwatch, or a simple log to keep track of your miles. Watching your progress grow is a fantastic motivator!

  • Fundraise: Share your journey with friends, family, and colleagues to raise funds for ACCORD Hospice. Every donation, big or small, helps us continue providing compassionate care and support to those who need it.

  • Stay Connected: Join our online community to share your progress, celebrate milestones, and stay inspired. Use the hashtag #HomeRunHospice on social media to connect with fellow participants

Why Participate?

  • Support a Good Cause: Your participation helps ACCORD Hospice provide vital services to patients and their families. Your efforts directly contribute to making a difference in people's lives.

  • Stay Active and Healthy: Starting the year with a fitness goal is a great way to stay motivated, improve your health, and beat the winter blues.

  • Flexibility: You can complete the challenge at your own pace, in your own time, and in any location that suits you.

Tips for Success

  • Plan Your Miles: Break down the 31 miles into manageable chunks. For example, aim for a mile a day or a few longer sessions each week.

  • Stay Motivated: Set mini-goals and celebrate each milestone. Reward yourself for sticking to your plan.

  • Get Social: Encourage friends and family to join you, or challenge each other to see who can reach their goal first.
