Reasons to do it…

 There are many reasons to run the Cardiff Half Marathon for Hospice of the Valleys – whether it’s in memory of a loved one, because you, a family or friend has received support from the Hospice, to push and challenge yourself or simply because you need somewhere to wear your costume…What are you waiting for?


Ricky kindly shared why he and his family decided to take part in Cardiff Half for the Hospice.


“On the 13th of August 2018 my world fell apart when my dad (Dean) was officially diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer at the age of 49.  He fought his hardest for six months, but even he wasn’t strong enough to beat it! On January 8th 2019, just eight days before his 50th birthday, Dad sadly passed away.

From start to finish, day or night, the Hospice of the Valleys were there to support Dad and ease his pain. The gratitude we as a family have for the Hospice can’t be said in a thank you. No one realises just know how much they actually do for you, until you experience something as traumatic yourself.

Running the Cardiff half marathon together, gave us something to focus on and work towards, whilst still grieving the death of Dad. At the beginning, running as little as 3 miles for any of us was a challenge, so 13.1 miles sounded crazy!

However, after months of hard work and determination, the training finally paid off when we crossed that finish line! I know that Dad would have been proud of us all. Together we have raised money for a wonderful charity. Thank you from the bottom our hearts”



The minimum age for our charity place is 18 years old on the event day.

Thank you from everyone here at the Hospice.
