Chester Half Marathon 2024

Chester Half Marathon 2024

Posted 11th January 2024

New Year New You? Get fit whilst fundraising in 2024!

In November 2023, our staff, young people and partners took part in Run Alton Towers and raised an amazing £11,000 towards a white good for each of our young people entering their first home.

This year we are inviting our project staff and young people, partners and consultants to put on their running shoes again and take part in the Chester Half Marathon on Sunday 19th May!

Chester Half is one of the UK’s longest established and most highly regarded half marathons. The course boasts a city centre start and finish, with a route that takes in all the city centre sights, picturesque countryside and with closed roads on the day, there will be lots of space for your supporters. Participants will each receive a House Project running top, bespoke finishers medal and goodie bag.

Once again, all the sponsorship monies raised will go towards the provision of white goods for our young people moving into their first home. NHP has been covering this expense but may no longer able to do so due to rising costs. 

What a great motivator to get fit for 2024. There are plenty of spaces and time get training. And with the event being in May, we’re certainly expecting the weather to be warmer this time!

We’re delighted to be joined again by our valued corporate supporter, #TeamReconomy, who are already booking places.

"The Alton Towers event was amazing and I enjoyed every moment of it. For my first run with 3 months of training it was brilliant and I would definitely do it again!"
Kieran Wright, Business Administration Apprentice at NHP

Mark your calendars, spread the word, and let's come together to champion the cause of care leavers through these events.

A message from our CEO January 2024

Last year we celebrated our 5th Birthday and whilst this was a great opportunity to reflect on our collective and individual achievements, we soon set about setting our vision for the next 10 years, and the strategy to get us there. Increasing our reach to more young people both by spreading and diversifying in local authorities where there is already an existing Local House Project (LHP) and scaling to new LAs is key whilst at the same time improving our offer by acting on the insights of young people, colleagues and independent evaluations.
