Springy's Moonlit Sprint or Stroll


Summer is nearly here which can only mean one thing for Springhill Hospice fundraisers……it’­s time for Springy’s Moonlit Sprint or Stroll!

Last year 120 men, women and children togged themselves up in a Springy the Hospice Frog costume to take on a 10km sprint or stroll…..or even hop!

This evening sponsored walk starts and finishes at Rochdale’s Rugby Union Club, Bamford, with all the frogs being treated to a Zumba warm-up from Rochdale Zumba Queen – Becky Smithies.

“At 9.30 pm our walkers frogs legs will have been warmed up and will be ready to go” said fundraiser Lillie Winterbottom. “Our froggies loved last year’s event, everything from an earlier start to a brighter less strenuous route meant everyone had a great time”.

Springy himself will set off the walk on Saturday July 2nd at 9.30pm and be there to greet the walkers when they return with a commemorative medal, a well-earned bacon or veggie sandwich, a cup of tea and a big Springhill Smile!

With £7 out of every £10 needed to keep the doors of the Hospice open provided by the community, Springhill needs you to get involved. Springy’s Moonlit Sprint or Stroll last year raised nearly £10,000. 

Think. You, your friends, your family and your work colleagues can also join in the fun froggy fun and fundraise for Springhill Hospice.
