raised of £1,000 target by 69 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,190 to split 50/50 between Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and The Running Bee Foundation.

    Funded on Tuesday, 11th August 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Corona Virus has impacted the world like we've never seen before. One thing we try to do a lot at Daddies Escape is raise money for charity. Hearing the news in mid June that the Great Manchester Run had now been cancelled for 2020 meant that a lot of local charities will lose out as this is probably their biggest fundraiser for the year.

    July marks the 72nd birthday of the NHS and after speaking to the charity team at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital they are using this as a fundraising opportunity. They're asking that people try and raise at least £72 by taking on a challenge with a 72 theme during July.

    So here it is.... Members of the Daddies Escape running group are going to attempt to run 72 separate 10k runs each, or in a relay team, during the 31 days of the month of July!

    The relay team of Mark Bousie, Craig Banks, Mark Collier, Frankie Yan, Richard McCalmont, Ricky Lee, Jason Swapp, Andy Hadfield, and Gareth Swift will be running a total of 8 x 10k's each to take the team to the magic number of 72.

    Peter Gough and Liam Mellon are taking this on individually which means they will each be running 2 x 10k's each day for 21 days and to fit it all in there are 10 days where they will need to run 3 x 10k's to complete the challenge.

    This isn't going to be easy, there may be tears and sore bits but we are all up for the challenge!

    We've increased our target to £1000 after hitting the original £720 on day 21. We can't do it alone and will need your support and kindness by donating whatever you can to help us reach our goal and keep us motivated to complete the challenge. We're counting on you!

    Whatever money we raise we are going to split across the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and The Running Bee Foundation equally. Find out more on the links below about what each of these 2 amazing charities do and how they help people in your area:

    Thank you

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
