    Fifteen DL M & E employees are joining Stuart on four 10K runs to help him reach his goal to raise £5000 by the end of December. The money is being raised in aid of Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, which helped Stuart's family in a time of crisis

    Stuart's story

    I am raising funds for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital to put a smile on children's faces on Christmas day. I'm a parent myself and I have always wanted to do this . I am running a 10k race each month in September, October, November and December.

    I couldn’t run 2 minutes at start of this year and the furthest I ran is 5k, so it’s going to be a challenge for me (cheerleaders are welcome to help encourage me on the route)

    A close friend of the family has been through a lot and Royal Manchester Children's Hospital helped him and his family massively. This is my godsons story

    He became unwell when he was 18 months old and was transferred to the hospital in the first month it was opened

    He was in and out of A&E for years before he was transferred to the gastro team, where at 5 he was finally diagnosed with severe Crohn's disease

    He was immediately put on a drug called Infliximab (used in chemotherapy) that cost the NHS £22,000 a year

    After two and a half years he was finally in remission

    However, his body relapsed and soon he was back in the hospital system

    But I can honestly say his family wouldn't feel as at ease with his illness if it wasn't for the support of the team at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, from the play specialists who were amazing (especially the then IV team), his IBD nurses who updated us on an almost daily basis, and his IBD doctors Dr Fagbemi and Dr Jago, not forgetting the rheumatology team

    It's been a difficult few years for all the family but support always makes things easier, and the team at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital go above and beyond for children like my godson

    Please donate to this cause. Ours is one of many cases it could help, and I’m willing to go through hell running 40k over 4 months around the north west if it means putting a smile on one of these children’s faces

    Thank You "

    Stuart Prescott

    Race Schedule:

    23rd September: Southport

    14th October: Liverpool

    11th November: Lytham st Anne's

    9th December: Knutsford
