This April, join us in taking part in Miles for Rainbows and cover a 64.2mile loop across the East Midlands by either cycling, running, walking or swimming throughout the month. Whether you take on the route in one go, over multiple days or multiple ways, it’s up to you.

The Route:

The route is a 64.2mile loop from our Hospice in Loughborough, to the Leicester Royal Infirmary, then onwards to Nottingham Queen's Medical Centre, and back to our Hospice. We've chosen this route as we have introduced Rainbows Nurses into these hospitals. As a result, we are now reaching more families than ever… and Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire families are able to receive Rainbows care in a different way. By walking, swimming, cycling or running the distance between the two hospitals, you can help us bring more Rainbows Nurses to our other regional hospitals.

Registration is open now and the challenge starts on 1 April 2022. Please spread the word to your friends and family to get involved too!

Fundraising for Rainbows:

When taking part in Miles for Rainbows we’d love you to fundraise for us. There isn’t a fundraising target for this event but we are grateful for any amount you are able to raise. Anyone who raises £50 per person will receive a Rainbows canvas bag as an extra thank you! 

  • £50 could fund a home visit from a Rainbows nurse, giving respite care to an isolated family 
  • £100 could fund a two-hour music therapy session, providing a space for a child or young person to express themselves

Fundraising is easy, especially if you use JustGiving. You can create a JustGiving page to help make your online fundraising easier. By setting up a JustGiving page through this link, your fundraising amount will be added to the overall Miles for Rainbows total.

How much does it cost?

The cost to enter will be £15 and in return, all participants will receive a Rainbows t-shirt upon signing up (we will need your address details on sign-up). 

Ahead of the challenge, you'll also receive a Fundraising Guide which will provide more information on the challenge, how to log your miles via My Virtual Mission and support from our Community Fundraisers.

Anyone who raises £50+, will receive a special Rainbows canvas bag once they've completed the challenge.
