THREE REASONS TO GET INVOLVED!

RAISING AWARENESS

Raising awareness and funds is absolutely crucial to the longevity of our cause, raising awareness and funds gives our charities; Try Assist & The Christie the much needed support they need to continue.

HAVING A GOAL

Do you want to accomplish something that many people dream about, but few people ever actually accomplished? Unless you make it a goal for yourself and work everyday towards achieving it, why would you ever believe that you could accomplish it? Unless you see yourself slowly making progress, your dreams and aspirations are nothing more than vague notions floating around in your imagination.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Running regularly, can help prevent a number of long-term conditions just by moving your body’s large muscles repeatedly, when running. Whether you’re just starting or have always been active, make sure you take steps to stay injury free and able to perform to your best. Nutrition and hydration play key roles in this. It’s important to eat the correct foods to provide the fuel you need to exercise, as well as drinking enough water to keep you hydrated.

The Steve Prescott Foundation is a registered charity and is the legacy of Steve Prescott MBE who passed away in November 2013. Steve played for St Helens, Hull FC, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and was a Great Britain and Ireland international before a knee injury prematurely ended his career.

Steve was diagnosed with a rare abdominal cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei in 2006 and formed the SPF to raise funds and raise awareness for Try Assist, formerly The Rugby League Benevolent Fund and the Christie Hospital in Manchester. He undertook many physically and mentally exhausting challenges during his illness to raise funds. Steve had a pioneering multi visceral transplant with the small bowel, pancreas, duodenum and abdominal wall included at the Oxford Transplant Unit and although this eradicated the cancer Steve passed away a few weeks later. The SPF now also supports research into multi visceral transplants. Steve was immensely proud of the GPW Recruitment St Helens 10k. It was Steve’s wish to give the people of St Helens and Rugby League community a vehicle to get fit and healthy. The GPW Recruitment St Helens has certainly fulfilled his wish. We would like to encourage all athletes to raise funds for The Steve Prescott Foundation. A lot of work and effort goes into the organising of this event and we would like your support to continue Steve’s incredible legacy and help those less fortunate than ourselves.

The SPF has raised over £1,000,000 since its inception in 2007. The SPF helps in the organisation of the annual St Helens 10k run and the Taylor Park Challenge.

WHAT OUR SURVIVOR'S SAY!

All Marshalls, team and organisation were fantastic. Well organised and a brilliant atmosphere!

Liz, 2017 North Road Survivor

Keep being awesome! I love this event. I think you guys should definitely enter some 10k competitions, as I think should win awards for all your hard efforts!

Samantha, 5x North Road Survivor

Keep doing what you are doing, it's a great event and a real test, thought the start was better than last year, there were cones in the way just after the start last year if I remember rightly which created a bit of a log jam, many thanks to everybody concerned in the organisation of the race
