These are really something to talk about!
William is a 5 year old boy with dilated cardiomyopathy. At just 8 days old William had a cardiac arrest after contracting enterovirus which caused inflammation of the heart muscle.
Jake is a 5 year old cardiac patient and amazing charity ambassador at Alder Hey. He has arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy and a closed ASD (hole in the heart).
You won’t be on the start line and you won’t have thousands cheering you on…But you can still Be Your Greatest! The Official Great North Run is on for 13th September and you can join in for Alder Hey.
The recent COVID-19 outbreak has hit us hard and many of our fundraising activities, challenges, runs and events have been cancelled or postponed indefinitely, leaving us short of vital income.
A huge thank you again to John Laing Group and the John Laing Charitable Trust for supporting the wellbeing of our NHS staff and for their generous donation to our new Alder Centre.
