Virtual Lapland Adventure

Date: - DEC NOV

Join us for our Virtual Lapland Adventure!

Katharine House Hospice is looking for intrepid explorers willing to make their way (virtually) through the forests and snowy mountains of Lapland to Santa’s magical grotto.

Pick your route, either 5km or 10km, decide how you want to travel whether you want to walk, run, cycle, jog and track your progress on our virtual map as you travel towards this enchanting location.

Over the festive period there will be many families who will be spending their last Christmas together. They will be receiving care and support from our medical team, both on the in-patient unit and in their own homes. Your support will ensure special memories are created and all patients have the best Christmas possible.

You can record your journey manually or by using Strava.
