Join us and ‘Go The Distance’ from 12 June 2020

What are we asking?

Did you know that your local hospitals in Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells have their own charity? The MTW Charity strives to enhance the standard of care, services and facilities provided to patients, relatives, visitors and staff.

We invite you to take part in our exciting virtual challenge GO THE DISTANCE. Choose from 5km, 10km, half marathon or a marathon by either walking, running or cycling. Time is not a measure – your effort is. From registration you will have 30 days to complete the challenge, with entries closing on July 31st 2020.

Why should you get involved?

Did you know the NHS deals with over 1 million patients every 36 hours? The COVID-19 pandemic has left us all in unprecedented times. For our NHS staff at Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells hospitals, it has resulted in them working tirelessly around the clock, and this has been physically and mentally challenging. To demonstrate our appreciation and commitment to our staff, the MTW Charity aims to fund schemes which will enable us to better support their physical and mental wellbeing.


If you would like to Go The Distance with us in this fun-filled event, then we request a kind donation of £10.00 minimum. To show our thanks and appreciation to everyone who completes the distance and fundraising challenge, you will receive a bespoke medal, a certificate and recognition on our social media channels!
