Scrub up for Scannappeal
Scannappeal, a charity dedicated to providing state of the art medical equipment, has launched the Scrub Run at the Cardiology Department of Wycombe Hospital setting the scene for the inaugural family fun run for local charity. The run is taking place on Sunday 21 May and plans to see all manner of doctor’s coats, nurse’s uniforms and scrubs take on the challenge.
Participants can choose a 5k or 1k route, both of which start and finish at Amersham Cricket Club and will take in the beautiful Great Missenden Way and Shardeloes. Those taking part are welcome to run, jog or walk, and don your favourite doctors and nurses’ outfit in homage to the incredible work our doctors and nurses do.
The day will kick off with a warm up provided local company, Wild Training, who are kindly supporting the event. With the runners decked out in their ‘doctors and nurses’ gear it is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face!
Hannah Camden, Operations Director, Wild Training said” Wild Training are excited to be supporting the Scannappeal Scrub Run and are delighted to be able to bring our passion to the event and get everyone motivated through a fun a friendly warm up”.
By taking part you will be supporting Scannappeal’s All Heart Appeal. This Appeal is raising funds to buy two latest generation 3D scanners to diagnose and evaluate heart disease. Equipment purchased by Scannappeal is used every 10 minutes in the local hospitals by 1 in 4 residents of Buckinghamshire.
Registration for the Scrub Run closes on Wednesday 17 May at midday. Adult entry is £10, 5 – 16 year olds £5, and under 5’s run free with every participant receiving an exclusive Scrub Run medal on completion. Early bird entry fees will be available until Monday 3 April 2017.
