Run for The Sussex Beacon

Run for #TeamBeacon in 2024!

We’re inviting you to be a hero and support our heroes, The Sussex Beacon Nursing Team. Raise £200 (excluding Gift Aid) and you will receive VIP treatment, with private toilets, dedicated bag drop and a unique Beacon medal. Run dressed as a hero or in a Team Beacon vest.

This year we are raising money to fund the position of an amazing inpatient unit nurse, so run dressed up as your favourite hero (whether that be a superhero or someone who is a hero to you) or with a Team Beacon vest. It’s up to you!

We have a limited number of free places on offer, so don’t delay! Get in touch at .

Each year the Brighton Half Marathon raises vital funds for The Sussex Beacon. It ensures we can continue to support people living with HIV in Sussex.

Tom Oakden has brought a group of runners to Team Beacon for the last 5 years, and here’s why:

“I decided to run for the Sussex Beacon as have some friends who have been served so excellently by you. To be available 365 days of the year, helping serve people in real need, I find it a privilege to be fundraising to support that, for our city.

“Sponsorship is so much more than raising money. There’s much opportunity to bring awareness that the Beacon is simply there, what you do, your history, and the reality of the needs that you serve. So many people seem to have an affection to the Sussex Beacon, a lot from personal association which is a brilliant encouragement.”
