Altrincham VS Cancer Breaks It’s Fundraising Total For The Christie

28 Altrincham Businesses and community groups came together last week for the 3rd Annual Altrincham VS Cancer event

Organised by local businesses Altrincham HQ and Pure Gym, the event raised £2828 for The Christie with donations still flowing in

The event saw the runners take in 140k on the treadmills and has been their most successful event to date

The 3 events to date have raised £7472 for The Christie

Altrincham VS Cancer was launched in 2014 to mark the opening of Pure Gym in Altrincham and has become a regular fixture in March

For the past 2 years the event has been recognised by Justgiving for being in the Top 3% of fundraisers in the UK

The concept behind the 140k run was based on Twitter – there are 140 characters allowed in a tweet and many of those taking part in the run are part of the local Altrincham Twitter community

Organiser Alex McCann of Altrincham HQ says

“Altrincham VS Cancer is always one of my highlights of the year. It’s so good to be able to give something back to such a deserving cause each year.

In December last year we were invited to The Christie’s sporting reception for fundraisers which really brought it home how much events like this help the charity. They need millions each year to pioneer research in the fight against cancer and in the scheme of things – our fundraising is just a drop towards that. But many drops become an ocean. Everyone plays their part

Seeing the community come together for something as important as Altrincham VS Cancer is really heart-warming to see – the whole town really does get behind us and cheers us on”

Altrincham VS Cancer will be back again in March 2017 and donations for this years event are still being accepted on Justgiving
