Take part in our Sixty in 60 challenge

Last year we launched our ‘Sixty in 60 challenge’ where we want to get sixty runners taking part in the Greater Manchester Run 10Km in under 60 minutes, whilst raising as much money as possible for the hospice. It is led by one of our amazing fundraising volunteers, Mitch who came up with the idea. You can take part in this challenge if you have a St Ann’s place or your own.
