Wear it blue
On Wednesday 5 July, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, do it wearing blue! Mark this iconic birthday milestone with the colour of our wonderful NHS, whether it’s a party hat, pair of socks, or a full blue suit. Ask your colleagues, friends, family, schools and community groups to join you for the day and donate to support our work. Wear it blue and donate via our website or create a fundraising page on JustGiving or Facebook.
Saturday 8 July (adults) and Sunday 9 July (juniors)
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to parkrun before, or you’re about to complete your 100th, we’d love you to take part in your local event and raise funds for NorthCare. You can run, jog, walk or volunteer. If you’re there on the day, you’ll be showing your support for our NHS!
Find your local parkrun, get your fundraising page set up on JustGiving or Facebook in advance, and dust off those trainers There’s even a junior event on Sunday 9 July, so they can show the adults how it’s done. For more information about your local parkrun, visit www.parkrun.org.uk.
Make a one-off donation to mark the celebration and support our services. Donate via our website or create a fundraising page on JustGiving or Facebook. More information on donating with cash or a cheque is here.
