Blackpool Night Run supports our dedicated children’s hospice Brian House, and every child and family in our care. We do ask that every runner try to fundraise or donate a minimum of £30.

Over the years, the event and its participants have helped raise an incredible £276,000 through sponsorship and donations- funds that allow us to continue running and expanding our life-changing, specialist services.
