"We are fortunate enough to live in a city with a world-renowned children’s hospital, who have given so much to Liverpool as well as surrounding areas. We take great pride in what Alder Hey does and would like to give back through this event." Rue Murphy - Event Organiser
We have reached out to one of Alder Hey’s ambassadors, Ted McCaffery, to support us with this event.
Ted was admitted to Alder Hey himself for heart complications, which required surgery to correct. Ted in return, ran a triathlon, which raised £1000. Since then, Ted, with the support of his mother, Jo, have gone on to raise much needed awareness/funding for Alder Hey. In recognition of his contribution, Ted was awarded the LIDL's Young Fundraiser Of The Year Award, at the Pride Of Britain Awards 2014.
They have now set up their own volunteering network with Alder Hey called Team Ted, and as a result have now raised over￡74,000 with social media campaigns such as the ‘Show Us Your Bear’.
