The Rabbit Run was a fundraising event set up in March 2015 by Martina Toal who is taking on a number of 26.2 marathon challenges representing the Hospice  and  in the hope to raise as much money and awareness as possible for The  Northern Irelands Childrens Hospice.  

The Hospice is the only service of its type within Northern Ireland caring for children and young people with very complex needs. There are over 1,300 life-limited children and young people and their families living in Northern Ireland who need the specialist care that only Children's Hospice can provide.
