More than 40 runners took to a 5k inflatable race to raise funds for a new 24 bed hospice in Norfolk.
The charity runners, who were aged between eight and 72, took part in the inflatable race for Priscilla Bacon Hospice at the Norfolk Show ground on Saturday, October 19.
All runners agreed to raise at least £100 each towards the appeal to build a new specialist palliative and end-of-life care hospice.
The hospice will be built on the land adjacent to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and will replace the 40-year-old Priscilla Bacon Lodge.
Michelle Allen ran with her two children Bryony, 11, and Kelsey, who is aged eight.
The family were running in memory of Sandra Payne - their mother and grandmother who was cared for at Priscilla Bacon Lodge in the last four weeks of her life.
Kelsey said: "Mum was really sad when Grandma died, and I would like to raise some money so that families can spend a little more time together."
Chantelle Tyrrell, who also ran at the event, said: "I hosted a bake sale to help raise money at Flagship Homes where I work and was amazed by the number of people who approached me, who have heard of or been supported by Priscilla Bacon Lodge.
"It was great to feel part of a team on the day and to feel like together we are making a difference to help build the new hospice."
Hugo Stevenson, head of fundraising and communications for Priscilla Bacon Hospice, said: "We were absolutely thrilled so many runners chose to raise money to help build the new hospice for Norfolk.
"Hearing the stories of those families who had received care and wanted to raise money so they could give back to the charity was really heartening. "It was also fantastic that so many other runners decided to fundraise for us, as they could recognise the desperate need for a new specialist end-of-life care facility for the county."
