QNI calls on nurses for 10k charity run

  • Comment

The Queen’s Nursing Institute wants nurses to don their running shoes for the British 10k London run.

QNI’s spokesperson Joanna Stagnella said: “It’s an amazing event and the runners raised over £3000 last year and we want to double that this year to support our work.”

The run will take place in central London, passing many famous landmarks, on 11 July. It is open to all levels, be it walking, jogging or running.

QNI’s director Rosemary Cook said: “We had a brilliant day at the run last year. The sun shone, our runners were easy to spot in their special QNI T-shirts, and they all finished!”

Last year’s runners included a City University nursing professor and a group of her students and the Chair of the Association of District Nurse Educators.

Ms Cook added: ‘We are very excited to be taking part in this year’s event. We need to raise funds to continue our vital work supporting community nurses - the unsung heroes of community healthcare - and ensuring that they can provide the best of care to their patients.’

The deadline for registering is 20 June. For more information or to book your place visit qni.org.uk
