Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire Hosts Annual Cancer in the Community Event
Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire invites runners, walkers, families and spectators to join its annual charity event for Cancer and the Community. Taking place on Sunday, September 8, 2019, the event raises funds for three main charities closely connected with the property: the Brain Tumour Charity, Phyllis Tuckwell and the Target Ovarian Cancer charity.
Four Seasons has organised and participated in annual charity runs and other initiatives all over the world to raise funds toward advancing cancer research for more than 38 years. A key date in the calendar at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, the Hotel team is dedicated to beating cancer with its annual Cancer and the Community event.
Now in its 14th year, the team is proud to say that thanks to the loyal support of their guests and community, Cancer and the Community has raised thousands of pounds for a range of worthy causes and local cancer charities. These funds have gone on to help save millions of lives through the work of these fantastic charities who every day are discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
Since the first race back in 2005, more and more people have shown their support to the event at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, but for 2019, to enable the Hotel to raise as much money as possible with this non-profit event, an impressive target of 450 entrants has been set.
Guests of all ages are welcome to run or walk the 2 kilometre or 5 kilometre route around the Hotel's glorious Dogmersfield Park Estate, which will later be followed by an afternoon of fun-filled activities, live entertainment and delicious food. A dedicated area for children will occupy the younger ones with face painting, lawn games, raffle and tombola. And for runners in need of a little recovery after their run, Four Seasons will also be offering complimentary chair massages.

The Brain Tumour Charity
The Brain Tumour Charity is the world's leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally. Committed to saving and improving lives, they’re moving further, faster to help every single person affected by a brain tumour. They're set on finding new treatments, offering the highest level of support and driving urgent change.
Phyllis Tuckwell is the only hospice care service for adult patients and their families, across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire. For many patients living with an advanced or terminal illness, hospice care helps manage pain and improves the quality of life for both the patient and their family. Seeking care through Phyllis Tuckwell isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life. In addition to its In-Patient Unit and Care at Home service, Phyllis Tuckwell has recently introduced a range of Living Well services both in the hospice and at the Beacon Centre. These services enable the patient to manage the impact of their illness, cope with changes, improve wellbeing and remain as independent as possible – so that they can get the most out of life.
Target Ovarian Cancer Charity
Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK's leading ovarian cancer charity. As a charity they work to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide much-needed support to women with ovarian cancer. They work with women, family members and health professionals to ensure they target the areas that matter most for those living with ovarian cancer.
