Story

My 100km challenge that I completed in 2020 has inspired us both to continue fundraising and help even more children that are in hospital and receiving treatment for cancer. Hughie won't finish treatment until March 2024 however we are going to do our next challenge TOGETHER!! We are going to run 100km around the 92 football pitches in the Premier League and EFL.. to make it up to 100km we're hoping to run at some other iconic stadiums and events around the UK.

We want to do this challenge to raise funds for every children's hospital in England and be able to provide slushy drink pouches for children who are having chemotherapy, just like we have already been able to do in Hughie's ward 86 at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, one of the side effects of chemotherapy is really painful and sore mouths so these drinks really help plus they make your tongue go blue and that's really cool!

We'll be opening some new fundraising team pages so you can select your nearest or chosen children's hospital if you would like to donate that would really mean a lot to us..

Thank you so much for your support, we feel really lucky to be able to do this challenge together!

Previous fundraising story:

Hi I'm Freddie, I'm 9 years old and I want to raise money for RMCH because my friend Hughie is being treated for leukaemia on ward 84 to do this I am going to run a junior park run (2km) every day until I reach 100km on Christmas Day which is in about 50 days time!

Hughie is being incredibly brave and has faced it head on without any moaning. He's had over 50 blood tests, numerous scans and trips to theatre and he's still smiling and entertaining the staff on Ward 84. Everyone is so proud of his positive attitude and resilience to everything that has been thrown at him, what a superstar!

Keep going Hughie bro, you got this!!
