Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity is delighted to be the local lead charity for the 2017 Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon. Our Charity exists to enhance the experience of the 220,000 children cared for by Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital each and every year.
Our aims are very straightforward: to support excellence in the treatment, research and care that we provide to our young patients, now and always. We aim to make a real difference to the children and young people in our care by ensuring they continue to receive the highest quality treatment in the highest quality facilities.
We do this by focusing our fundraising efforts on three key areas, namely treatment, research and care. These can include the purchase of specialist equipment to diagnose and provide treatment of our young patients more quickly and easily, creating as child-friendly an environment as possible and funding pioneering medical research to increase our understanding of children’s illnesses and the optimum way to treat them.
People and organisations from across the country are already active supporters of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. Our supporters include thousands of individuals, businesses and community organisations, each making their own unique contribution to make life better for the hospital’s patients and their families.
We are looking for as many runners as possible to join #TeamHumphrey at this year’s Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon. We will be here to support you every step of the way with your fundraising and on race day. Every one of our runners will get a free t-shirt to wear on race day and show your allegiance to the Children’s Hospital.

With the support of our runners we can help ensure that Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital isn’t just the largest children’s hospital in the UK but also the very best!
