10K YOUR WAY – Join the #10kForNurses


The #10KForNurses registration is open and we want you to do your 10k your way!

The #10KForNurses is a Cavell Nurses’ Trust and @WeNurses collaboration to get people inspired and moving in October, to raise vital funds for nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants in need, to raise awareness of the fab work Cavell Nurses’ trust do and to share how we can all be #HereForNurses, with some appreciated additional help from @medrevalidation .


We would like to get:

10 x 10 fantabulous people (that’s 100 people!)

Raising an amazing £10,000 (that’s £100 each!) for the Cavell Nurses’ Trust

In the 10th Month (that’s October!)

By doing a #10kForNurses! (How? That’s up to you!)





Decide what you are going to do to raise money? We have some inspiration for you:



Central 10k runJoin Cavell Nurses’ Trust and WeNurses as we run together to support nurses this October – location for this central run will be decided via a Twitter poll early August.

Organise a 10k run – Organise a group of friends, family or colleagues to run your own 10kForNurses

Join a local 10k runTake a look at these local 10k runs and register for one of them for your 10k

Just runStep outside your front door and run!!



Organise a 10k walk – Get some family, friends and colleagues together for a sponsored 10k walk. Take a packed lunch and enjoy some fresh air together.

Walk every day - Get active and get sponsored to walk 10k steps every day in October!



Of course you don’t have to run or walk your 10k, there are lots of amazing non-sporting 10ks … you can do ANYTHING!

Share lots of training pictures (don’t forget that WeActiveChallenge runs throughout August and #nursesactive is a great way to limber up ready for your 10kForNurses). Remember to ask your friends, colleagues and even workplace to sponsor you!





DO IT!! – Run, walk, skip, hop, lift, jump, ski, bake or whatever … do it all at once or split it into smaller chunks … take a team picture or a selfie, tweet your stats, celebrate your achievement and feel good that you did your 10k your way and completed your #10kForNurses. Remember lots of sponsorship comes in on the day and after your event, so keep on sharing!
