30 Miles My Way
This month the Charity team is delighted to announce the launch of their new 30 Miles My Way campaign in support of our family of hospitals.
Our hard-working staff across the Trust clock up many miles in their working day, with our nurses walking an average of 30 miles a week! In April, we are asking our supporters to get out in the fresh air and clock up 30 miles of your own…anyway you like, in support of our hospitals across Manchester and Trafford.
There are so many ways in which you could challenge yourself – you can run, walk or cycle the 30 miles in one go or space it out across the week or month! You can even choose to support a specific hospital, ward or area. Adapt your challenge to any age or ability – you really can set yourself a goal, ramp up your training and challenge yourself to do anything!
