RUH Chief Medical Officer Runs Bath Half Marathon for Hospital Charity

Posted: 22nd March 2024

Andrew Hollowood, Chief Medical Officer at the Royal United Hospitals Bath, ran the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 17 March to raise funds for RUHX, official NHS hospital charity of the RUH.

He was in good company with a team of 70 runners taking part for the charity alongside him, including several other RUH staff members from across the hospital.

Members of the RUH Executive team came to the Runners’ Village on the day to show their support and thank those going the extra mile for the hospital.

Andrew has raised over £800 so far, which will help the hospital to go further for patients and staff, supporting extra extraordinary care, contributing to over £22,500 raised in total by Team RUHX at the Bath Half 2024.

Andrew said that the RUH is “a place of great innovation that really is on the forefront of cutting-edge technology and patient care.”

“The charity works hand in hand with helping the RUH to deliver that, so I wanted to contribute to RUHX and help the patients of Bath and beyond.”

When asked what advice Andrew would give to other RUH staff who want to get involved with the charity, he said: “Oh join us! You don’t have to run a half marathon, but there are plenty of things you can do in order to make a difference for you, for your colleagues, and the local community.”
