The Run for All Series was set up by Jane Tomlinson CBE to stand as her fund-raising legacy.  Before her death from breast cancer in 2007, Jane raised £1.85 million for children's and cancer charities through a series of gruelling physical challenges whilst battling with the cancer.

A cash boost of £37,500 was donated from the Jane Tomlinson Appeal to the hospice where Jane spent her final days in 2007.  So St Gemma's Hospice is a charity close to her family’s heart.  The St Gemma's Hospice Refurbishment Appeal has been launched to raise the £339,000 needed to make vital improvements to the patient’s rooms on the In-Patient Unit, including installing hoists, revising colour schemes to give better contrast to those patients with dementia or visual impairment and improving flooring to minimise infection risk and reduce the possibility of falls.
