Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises vital funds to help make Alder Hey Children's Hospital a truly world-class, patient-friendly hospital for the 330,000 patients and families we care for every year.
Since April 2013, over £43m has been raised for a range of life-saving medical equipment and facilities that are making a real difference to families every day - but we still need your support.
The charity helps to fund a range of activities and projects that are designed to enhance and improve the lives of our amazing young patients. This includes the funding of specialist medical equipment to ensure our brilliant surgeons and clinical staff have the most up to date and cutting edge technology available and funding hi-tech distraction equipment designed and proven to reduce pain and anxiety in our patients. We also fund a range of programmes and special projects such as our ward musicians, our on site magician and the play specialists we have on every ward. Our ground-breaking ward-based chef programme ensures we are delivering healthy and nutritionally balanced food to all our patients when they need it most.
Your support has recently enabled us to complete our £6m appeal to build a new research and education facility, The Speakman Building and we remain committed to supporting cutting edge research at Alder Hey.
The beautiful 500 acre site at Croxteth Hall & Country Park will once again provide the backdrop for the 2019 Alder Hey Fun Run.
The new chip timed RunTogether 5k route will take in a number of the parks best features and will finish outside of the spectacular Croxteth Hall where family, friends and supporters will be gathered.
This short and easy route around Croxteth Hall is perfect for all ages and abilities and we welcome prams, children and wheelchairs. So bring the whole family along - including Rover - on the day and join us for this fantastic event.
Runners in PJ's will get an extra thumbs up from the marshals! Dogs in PJs get two...
Also, a Guinness World Record will be happening on the day, media coverage and celebs.
