Celebrate the 75th birthday of our NHS in style with Team Addenbrooke’s!

The NHS’s 75th birthday will take place during 2023 and communities across the country are coming together to join the NHS1000 mile challenge to mark the occasion.

What is the NHS1000 miles challenge?

To celebrate the NHS staff and support their work, During 2023, people are asked to walk, run, swim or cycle (or a combination) the distance of 1,000 miles. That’s an average of 2.74 miles per day.

 You can take on an individual challenge or join as a team and raise funds for Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals.

How can people get involved? Choose your challenge:

Participants are encouraged to keep a record of their weekly miles and are invited to share their progress on Twitter on Sunday nights at 7.30pm using the hashtag #NHS1000miles. Don’t forget to tag us @ACTcharity
