The runners will be putting their fitness to the test on April 24 as they pass some of the capital city’s most iconic landmarks in the world reknowned race.
Hope House secured the places from the Chester Lions as part of their 21st birthday celebrations, having provided 21 years of respite, end of life care, bereavement and community support to terminally ill and life limited children and young people from across North and Mid Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire.
Hope House last year supported 728 families and this year need to raise £6 million to provide their services – that’s more than £100,000 every week.
Director of fundraising and marketing for Hope House and Ty Gobaith Simi Epstein said: “We are truly grateful to the Chester Lions Club who have kindly gifted us the opportunity to participate and raise vital funds at this iconic marathon. We depend on voluntary donations in order to provide the care and support the children and families need. Without people like the Chester Lions and our wonderful dedicated team of runners we would not be able to do what we do and we therefore consider ourselves very fortunate.”
