*** RUNDERFUL NEWS ***
We can confirm the profits from this year’s race have been counted and verified!
We are delighted to announce a record amount has been raised!
Drum roll please.....
The Race Committee proudly presented three cheques, each worth £2,019 to this year’s charity partners
Friends for Leisure
North West Air Ambulance Charity
Over a glass of celebratory bubbles, the charities explained how the funds would be spent - towards the purchase of much needed on-board life saving equipment, providing necessary outreach support and giving life experiences to young people that many take for granted. We look forward to their updates over the next few weeks.
An extra special thanks to our cash and product sponsors for their generosity.

Friends for Leisure are a registered charity helping children and young people with disabilities across Cheshire East to enjoy friendship and leisure. They have a vision of a society where all children and young people have the same opportunities and the support they need to make friends and have fun.
Through a variety of services, Friends for Leisure offer 5 youth groups, ten-pin bowling clubs, breakfast clubs, a drama club and a programme of holiday activities, as well as one-to-one friendships, or ‘buddies’.
What makes Friends for Leisure unique is that a vast team of young volunteers (80% under 21 years old) help to deliver all these activities so that local children are happier, healthier and no longer lonely or isolated.
Visyon is a mental health charity supporting local young people when they need it most.
North West Air Ambulance Charity takes advanced healthcare to scene; reaching, treating and transferring patients to definitive care as quickly as possible and working collaboratively with it's partners to ensure they are transferred to the best treatment centre thus improving chances of survival and reducing the risk of long term injury.
Just as many critically injured patients would not survive without the service, North West Air Ambulance Charity would not be here without help. The service is funded by the generosity of the public through donations, fundraising activity, lottery membership and through their network of retail outlets, who provide vital charitable funding to keep their service flying.
