Home Run is the March virtual fundraising event, a challenge of running 13 miles to help raise funds to help St Luke’s continue caring for hundreds of people across Sheffield in their own homes.

Regular runners might go the full distance in one run, others might spread the distance over a few days with runs or walks.

Jana, who works for digital agency Hydra Creative - keen St Luke’s supporters - concedes that she will probably take the walking approach, supported by husband Eerik.

“In my home country of Estonia, we don’t really have anything similar,” said Jana.

“I know this sort of fundraising event is popular in the UK and I thought it would be a great experience for me.

“I don’t consider myself a runner at all so I think it very likely that I will walk most of it and do my best to do a bit of running.

“The idea was to drive to Scotland and pick a day walk there but if that’s not possible we’ll probably do it much closer to home.”
