Alder Hey is the leading children's hospital in the North West of England and whether you are from Preston or elsewhere, we rely on fundraisers to take part in charity challenges to raise money for the hospital. Last year thousands of fundraisers help us raise millions of pounds that help fund both the purchasing of life-saving medical equipment and the facilities that make a real difference to our patients and their families.
Completing your charity challenge in Preston will also help deliver life-changing and life-saving research into childhood conditions like arthritis, cancer and diabetes. Our ground-breaking research facilities can help children everywhere, not just those under Alder Hay's care. Before testing a new treatment for juvenile arthritis, Lily was in too much pain to even play with her friends. Now, she's able to do gymnastics and loves it!
