RESULTS - 2012
Full results from the 2012 Prestwich Challenge are now available here.
For the past 5 years Prestwich Athletic Club have donated monies raised via the Prestwich Challenge to the Child Development Centre at Fairfield General Hospital, Bury, Manchester.
These monies have purchased equipment for children with specialist needs, such as specially adapted car seats, which provide safety and extra support, physiotherapy
equipment, safety equipment and toys. All these items help towards enhancing the daily lives of all the children involved.
Some examples of children we have helped are can be found here:

In 2013 we will continue to support the Child Development Centre, as well as Camberwell Park School, a Primary School in Blackley for children with severe learning difficulties.
The Prestwich Challenge starts and finishes at Sedgeley Park Rugby Club, and covers an area around Prestwich Clough, Drinkwater Park, Irwell Valley Sculpture Trail and Phillips Park.
