Tyne Bridge Harriers
50 Mile Relay Quayside Challenge
Tyne Bridge Harriers are proud to announce that on the Saturday 21st April at 10am they will be running a Fundraising event for two charities based at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, The Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) & The Freeman Heart & Lung Transplant Association (FHLTA). The race will start and finish at Baltic Square, Gateshead Quays NE8 3BA and will be started by the Mayor & Mayoress of Gateshead, Councillor Joe & Mrs Jen Mitchinson.
CHUF is at the forefront of children’s cardiac care by raising money to buy equipment, facilities, aftercare, pay salaries and research for the Children’s Heart Unit and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Small pieces of equipment help the nurses and doctors on the wards and larger items help doctors and surgeons undertake complex operations. Sometimes funds are used to help pay for medical and support staff, essential to the running of the unit and also for specialist resources to help children and their families. The FTLTA provide and assist in the provision of amenities at the Freeman Hospital which includes equipment and support for patients who are sick and convalescing or in need of financial assistance.
