Go the Distance!
Take part in our virtual run and you could help patients like Myla, whos live was saved on the Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children's.
This year we would have seen hundreds of amazing Team Theo runners, running in different events across the UK, sadly, due to the coronavirus pandemic, all these events have been cancelled or postponed... But we aren't going to let that stop us!
Sheffield Children's Hospital still needs your support now more than ever. We need you, your families and your friends to 'Go the Distance for Team Theo!' and take on your own run in your local area.
At Sheffield Children’s, our world-leading clinicians have stepped forward every day, continuing to provide life-changing care for children during the biggest public health emergency of our lifetimes.
In the midst of it all, The Children’s Hospital Charity has been there to support the hospital and there is still much more to do. The pandemic has affected everyone in different ways and we all want to make sure that the charity can continue to support Sheffield Children’s and the families it serves.
However, many charity events have been cancelled which were all due to raise vital funds.
The need for these funds hasn’t gone away, they remain absolutely vital to upgrade our Cancer Ward, expand and develop our Emergency Department which remains open 24 hours a day, and build a new Helipad on the hospital’s roof.
By the end of the financial year the charity is looking at a decline in fundraising of almost £3million.
The less raised, the longer patients at Sheffield Children’s will have to wait- for the traffic light to change so air ambulance arrivals can cross the road to access lifesaving treatment, in an Emergency Department built for half those attending and on a Cancer and Leukaemia ward without space to play or a parent to sleep comfortably next to their child.

Sheffield Children’s needs you now more than ever. During the pandemic, our staff have still been caring for children and families who need them, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Before the coronavirus pandemic, The Children’s Hospital Charity were fundraising for a new Cancer and Leukaemia ward, Emergency Department and Helipad. These projects are still vital and so is your support.
