Race Description

Luton Marathon is supporting the Pasque Charity, which incorporates the Keech Cottage Children’s Hospice. The Pasque Charity provides both emotional and practical support for adults and children diagnosed with a life-limiting condition. One of only a handful of UK organisations offering both an adult and children’s hospice from the same site, the Pasgue Adult Hospice provides for patients in Luton and South Bedfordshire and Keech Cottage Children’s Hospice for children in Beds and Herts. Please help by raising much needed funds for this very worthwhile cause.
