The Ian Hesketh Memorial Duathlon is a non profitable event. We pride ourselves on donating to a different charity each year and invite them to come along. We also have generous prize giving and T-shirts are given away to all competitors and marshals and we make a donation to Rivington Primary School for kindly allowing this event to take place on their grounds. Finally, a donation is made to Horwich RMI Harriers.
THE CHARITY WE SUPPORTED IN 2022 WAS 'STROKE ASSOCIATION'
in memory of Carlton Entwistle
Stroke Association are here to support people to rebuild their lives after a stroke. We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after a stroke.
We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
Rebuilding lives after a stroke is a team effort. It takes the determination of stroke survivors and carers, the generosity of supporters and the dedication of the healthcare and research communities to get there.
THE CHARITY WE SUPPORTED IN 2021 WAS 'DEMENTIA UK'
Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service.
When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the compassionate one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere.
Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side. They are a lifeline helping families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
We believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and we’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK.
