Altrincham businesses invited to take part in Altrincham vs Cancer challenge
Local businesses Pure Gym and Altrincham HQ are teaming up for the 5th Altrincham vs Cancer event on Thursday 22nd February 2018.
28 Altrincham businesses and community members will be teaming up to run 140k at Pure Gym Altrincham to raise money for The Christie.
Over the past four years Altrincham vs Cancer has raised nearly £10,000 for the Christie and has regularly featured in Justgiving's top fundraising events of the past 4 years. This 5th annual event set to raise even more vital funds for the charity.
This year Altrincham HQ have been named as a Regional Finalists in the Small Business Big Heart Awards for their work on Altrincham vs Cancer.
Alex McCann, founder of Altrincham HQ says,
“Altrincham vs Cancer is when the whole Altrincham community comes together to remember loved ones and do their bit to help kick cancer. I genuinely don't think there is a more worthy charity than The Christie in the UK. The Christie treats more than 44,000 patients a year - that's more than the population of my home town treated every single year.”
“My hope is that other towns take the baton with what we do with Altrincham vs Cancer and run events such as this in their home town for The Christie."
Lindsey Farthing of The Christie says,
"It is thanks to supporters like Altrincham HQ that we are able to fund projects that lie outside the scope of the NHS, including advanced facilities, ground-breaking research, specialist equipment and additional support. Alex has truly been a driving force behind the event. He’s committed to making it bigger and better year on year. Thank you to Alex and Altrincham HQ for your loyal support"
The Christie is the largest single site cancer centre in Europe, treating more than 44,000 patients a year here in Manchester
