Your Virtual Elf Dash 2020 – what a fan-DASH-tic success so far!

An insight into some of our dashing elves supporting our Poole Hospital Elf Service 2020 and helping us reach our £25,000 target this Christmas

Sunday 6th December, many people took to the streets, parks, costal beauty points and beach proms to take part in YOUR Virtual Elf Dash 2020! This year we wanted to continue our Elf Dash tradition commemorating it’s 5th year, we have been blown away by our array of many supporters who all dressed in their elf finery, signed up and enjoyed this event.

You can still get involved – extended throughout December

We’ve seen photos of elves dashing around the local area, such as Poole Park and over the Purbecks. We had a family who chose to complete their dash in the dark, whilst enjoying the twinkling views of the neighbouring festive lights.

Poole Hospital staff and their families got involved including our Clinical Management Team who together combined coverage of over 300 miles in 12 hours!

Each counting steps and encouraging one another while keeping a running total of distance. Raising an overwhelming amount towards our Christmas wish list.

Possibly our youngest dasher of just 8 months old took his parents out for a ‘dash’ on Sunday.

Warning: cuteness overload!

We’ve seen a combination of incredible Elves enjoying this virtual event so far, we are so proud of everyone who has already taken part and we would like to thank you ALL for registering, getting sponsored and keeping up the Christmas spirit! Lets keep this going!
