Axel's mum is encouraging people to pull on their running trainers and raise money by taking on the Welshpool 10K.

Rhiannon Jones ran the Welshpool 10K last year as part of a series that included the Oswestry 10K and Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon to raise money for the hospices where her son Axel receives care. 

Now she is encouraging people to take on the run, which is organised by our charity partner Adrenaline Sporting Events, on Sunday 24th March to help raise money.

Join the Welshpool 10K

Two-year-old Axel was born with multiple holes in his heart and needed multiple surgeries just weeks after being born. Axel first started attending the Sunshine Baby Group, Hope House’s parent and infant group with Rhiannon, but now also receives respite care at the hospice. 

A lifeline

“Hope House is absolutely incredible. It is our lifeline,” said Rhiannon, who lives in Montgomery.

“The difference people make when they raise money for families like ours is huge, that is why I wanted to give something back by running the races last year.

“The Welshpool 10K is a really fun race that goes right through the town, so if you’re looking to get out there and do a run while also making a difference then please sign up to run for Hope House.”

Our fundraiser Bekki said: “We have a limited number of free places on the Welshpool 10K so make sure you sign up to avoid disappointment. 

“When you sign up to run to raise money for Hope House you will be making a massive difference, and in return, you will also receive a special running T-shirt to wear on the day. All we ask is that you pledge to raise a minimum of £100.”
