Runners are being encouraged to hop to it this spring and support the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service (ADCHS).
The Maidenhead Bunny Fun Run is being held on Sunday, March 22 and organiser the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames has chosen the Devine cause as its nominated charity.
The fun run, which includes free bunny ears for runners, will be held in Oaken Grove Park off Oaken Grove at 9.30am.
More than £9,000 has been raised for 26 charities since the run started in 2012.
This year will see 25 per cent of the money raised donated to the campaign to build the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice in Berkshire.
Sally Stevens, ADCHS director of fundraising and communications, said: "We are thrilled the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames has chosen us as the main beneficiary of this year's fun run.
"We'd encourage all readers to take part because it's a really unique event in the area."
Stephan Stephan, a community member of the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames, says he wanted to support the hospice service after hearing a talk from charity co-founder Fiona Devine.
He said: “When Fiona Devine spoke at the Rotary Club she was so inspiring. She had so much passion to make a difference after the death of her son.
"I hope we can raise at least £5,000."
Stephan has appealed for at least 55 volunteers to help marshal the fun run route, which will start and finish at Oaken Grove Park.
Half of the sponsorship monies raised by the participants this year will go towards the runners' chosen charities.
The rest will be divided evenly between ADCHS and various Rotary charities.
Anyone interested in taking part in the run or volunteering should e-mail BunnyFunRun@Mail.com or contact Stephan on 07475 771471.
