What is the Daffodil Dash?
The Daffodil Dash is an awesome super spring challenge that supports Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal in 2020.
If you’re living with a terminal illness or you know someone who is, Marie Curie nurses, hospices, helper volunteers and information and support services are here for you, which is why we want to support them.
Marie Curie’s logo is a yellow daffodil, so this spring we’re launching our second DAFFODIL DASH to help grow funds for Marie Curie.
Run, walk, hop or skip 28km in the month of March to help us raise vital funds to continue Marie Curie’s amazing work.
That’s the equivalent of around 1km a day! Experienced runners and walkers can Daffodil dash in one go, newbie runners and walkers can dash 1km a day, it’s completely up to you!
We don’t mind how you do it, we don’t mind how fast you do it, we just need you to daffodil dash this spring so Marie Curie can provide the best possible care to people at the end of their life.
This race is open to everyone and you can run or walk as far as you can (broken down in as many events as you like) between 1st – 31st March 2020 to earn your exclusive medal!
Submissions proving your distance will be required by 3rd April at 12 noon to claim your medal. You must achieve a minimum of 28km across the month (not necessarily done in one go) to claim your medal. Anything after this date, will not be accepted, you will not appear on the results and will not get your medals.
Once you have submitted (and please only submit once and when you achieve the minimum distance of 28km), patiently wait for the post to arrive with your medal which will be sent within 5 working days after approval of your submission! As this is a challenge, we are asking for you to complete a minimum of 28km, if you want to do more then you will climb higher up our results table.
A minimum of 20% donation will be given to Marie Curie.
The Daffodil Dash supports Marie Curie research
Marie Curie’s Information & Support line team’s vision is to provide people living with a terminal illness, and their family and friends, with the information and support they need to live well from the moment their illness is terminal.
The Support Line provides a confidential, free service. No referral is necessary, so anyone can contact them, no matter where they live.
People might call about practical matters, such as access to services, equipment and finance, or for a listening ear to enable people to express their concerns or worries in a safe, confidential space.
