Community invited to participate in Stanmore hospital charity’s fundraiser

Stanmore’s Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Charity has launched a new fundraising initiative, inviting the local community to join in and support their cause. The charity aims to improve patient care, advance research, and foster innovation at the renowned RNOH in Stanmore.

Dubbed “Move 31 Miles in March,” the initiative challenges participants to cover the specified distance throughout the month in any way they choose – whether it’s walking, running, wheeling, swimming, or utilising other methods. This inclusive approach allows people of all fitness levels and abilities to take part, with the option to complete the challenge in a single day or gradually over the course of the month.

By participating in this spring challenge, community members have the opportunity to directly contribute to the enhancement of healthcare services at their local hospital. The initiative not only promotes physical activity but also underscores the importance of community support in improving patient outcomes and advancing medical research.


“This March, we’re calling on our community to join us in moving towards a common goal of 31 miles to support the vital work of RNOH,” said Vicky Brady, Community Fundraising Manager at RNOH Charity.

“Every step taken, every lap swum, contributes to our mission of providing leading-edge care to individuals facing life-changing orthopaedic conditions.”


Funds raised through the Move 31 Miles in March challenge will directly benefit RNOH, enabling the hospital to continue delivering exceptional care, ground-breaking research, and innovation in orthopaedic treatment for patients and staff – right here in the local area.

“We believe that together, through collective action and shared determination, we can make a profound impact on the lives of patients at RNOH,” added Vicky. “Whether you walk, wheel, run or swim, your participation in this challenge will make an amazing difference.”

Community members interested in participating in the Move 31 Miles in March challenge and supporting the RNOH Charity’s mission are encouraged to register via the RNOH Charity website, rnohcharity.news/moveinmarch, or email Vicky Brady for more information on how to get involved: rnoh.charity@nhs.net
