Help Acorns pay for the extra day this leap year by running at the Birmingham Running Festival!

February 2024 is a leap year, which means a whole extra day of children’s hospice care. It costs around £7,000 to run one of our hospices for a day, and £30,000 to provide Acorns’ vital care across our three hospices every day, so we need your help to pay for the extra day!

Join #TeamAcorns for a unique opportunity to run a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon around the beautiful Sutton Park, the 2,400 acre National Nature Reserve in Birmingham. Included in your entry fee is a themed medal, water and post-race goodies. Come and enjoy the day with us; we hope to see you there!

By joining, you’ll be helping us to pay for an extra day of vital care for life limited and life threatened babies, children, and young people across the West Midlands this February.
