5K every day in December


Becka Storer

Run, walk or jog 5k every day this December, and join a community raising funds to support people when it matters most.

Whether you go solo to reach a new personal best or join a group of friends or colleagues to get your daily steps in, do the December Daily Dash your own way.

You might do it to feel good and keep active this winter, or to join someone you know taking part, or because you want to help raise vital funds. Or maybe all three! Whatever your motivation, this challenge is for you.

This winter, help Sue Ryder handle the scary stuff, leaving families free to focus on what’s really important at the end of someone’s life - love.

History of the December Daily Dash

The December Daily Dash was founded in 2015 by Jackie and Mark Smith after Jackie lost her Dad to cancer, just 18 months after losing her Mum to the same illness.

Inspired by the care he received from Sue Ryder, they decided to set themselves a challenge to run 5k every day in December.

Initially joined by 11 friends (and Chester the dog!), the December Daily Dash grew in popularity over the following years to raise almost £550,000 for Sue Ryder's palliative, neurological and bereavement support. Since that first year, over 3,000 people have taken up the challenge alongside them.
