Towering Challenge for Leicester Nurses

Leicester Nurses Take On The Tower Run For LOROS Hospice

A group of Leicester nurses have set themselves a tall order at the St George’s Tower Run on Saturday 10 March. They aim to reach the top on behalf of LOROS Hospice.  

The St George’s Tower Run is the biggest event of its kind in the Midlands and attracts runners and hospice supporters from across the UK and overseas. It is the third year for this event, open to walkers as well as runners, and the organisers expect a record number of entries for this tough challenge. 
Taking part this time is a group of nurses called the ‘Day Therapy Dreamers’ who with many others will scale the heights on the 10 March in aid of the hospice. LOROS Hospice in Leicester provides care including palliative day therapy to terminally ill patients and their families based and the surrounding area. 
St George’s Tower, Leicester dominates the skyline with its coloured windows, 22 floors and 351 steps. Situated in the heart of the city, it has been the home of BT and the Post Office and is now the International Study Centre at the University of Leicester. 
The event is suitable for all irrespective of age or ability as LOROS Events Lead Andrew says: “Participants set the pace and whether you’re eight or 80 it’s a great way to test your physical ability while doing something amazing for LOROS.” Everyone who reaches the top will be rewarded with a medal and a welcome glass of Prosecco with a soft drink for under 18’s.
