Running a marathon requires exceptional physical fitness and so running one and raising money for charity at the same time is one of the biggest achievements there is. Running a marathon for charity not only requires peak fitness and a rigid training programme, but it also involves choosing a charity and asking friends and family to sponsor you, in order to meet your fundraising target. At Alder Hey, we rely on your fantastic donations to continue doing all of the amazing work that we do, so would love it if you could run your chosen marathon for our charity. Once you have chosen the charity that you would like to fundraise for, you can start by setting up a JustGiving page, that, once the event’s over, will automatically send your fundraising efforts direct to Alder Hey. Don’t forget to send your page to friends and family so that they can donate and if possible, share on your social media channels! Good luck!
