Pride of Lions 10K for The Christie

 

Buxton Lions Club has joined forces with five neighbouring Lions clubs just across the border in Cheshire, calling themselves a “Pride of Lions”, to raise funds for the new Christie Cancer Hospital due to open  in Macclesfield next year. For people living around the six clubs in the campaign– Alsager, Buxton, Congleton, Knutsford, Macclesfield and Vale Royal  -  the new hospital will cut travel times by more than half for over 1500 patients each year. As so many people in Buxton know, this will transform the experience of families currently having to travel to "The Christie in Manchester".

 

The new Christie will be a state of the art centre and the six clubs are aiming to raise at least £10,000 to fully equip one or two consulting rooms. David Brindley, Secretary of Buxton Lions, explained that the six clubs are benefitting from the fund-raising expertise of two friends of Macclesfield Lions associated with the  Macclesfield Rundamentalist Run Club, which is organising a virtual Fun Run, and the Cheshire Cheese Company, who are the campaign’s main sponsor.

 

The  Lions need you to run or walk a virtual 10K distance anywhere at your own pace between 19th and 27th June.

 

You need to register by donating £10 (or more if you wish!) and then signing up for the Fun Run. To support the campaign you  can also set up your own JustGiving page or by downloading a sponsorship form.

 

Club Runners can choose to be listed on a leader board – hopefully with Buxton runners well up there! – and all participants will receive a medal and maybe even a prize.
