Good Cause Of The Month: Alder Hey Children’s Charity


About Alder Hey Children’s Charity

This month, the good cause of the month is the Alder Hey Children’s Charity. It has two main purposes: one is to raise vital funds to help make Alder Hey in the Park a really patient-friendly hospital for the 270,000 patients and families they care for every year. The other one is to develop cutting edge, safer medicines and treatment to benefit young patients at Alder Hey and also across the world.

Run for Alder Hey Children’s Charity

Running for any charity is a great way to raise money for them. You can find local and countrywide races online. Then, you need to contact the Fundraising Office to let them know. But the most important thing is to prepare for the race and tell everyone about it ensuring you reach your target donation. Preparing the race means doing quite a bit of running daily. This is both physically and mentally challenging even for those who exercise regularly. Running requires a strong stamina! Apart from that, the right nutrition for runners really matters. As a runner, you need to fuel your body with a balanced and nutritious diet as well as ensure you’re eating enough calories to sustain the additional exercise you’re doing. Also on the the linked page, you’ll find some information about what your body needs when preparing for a running race.

Great recipes for runners

I have teamed up with Alder Hey Children’s Charity this month to raise awareness and provided them one of my healthy recipes to use it along other food bloggers’ recipes. You can find it here: Tricolour Quinoa Salad With Roasted Vegetables This is a perfectly balanced, plant based meal which provides you with all the important nutrients. Check it out and the other recipes as well!

As we’re based in the south we’ve never had to say the Alder Hey but I have heard amazing stories of their great care. Mich x

It sounds like they help provide a great service for patients and families. I’m a runner and I’m currently half marathon training and it can be very challenging at times. It’s important to refuel so I’m going to check out the recipe for ideas.
