COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on communities all over the world, and here in the North West, we have seen the heartbreaking impact on families, hospitals, carers and workplaces.

It is now almost a year since the Running Bee Foundation has staged a running event which has had a dramatic affect on our fundraising activity which enables us to support Health and Wellbeing initiatives across our communities. Additionally, we have been unable to further develop our initiatives to help in the fight to reduce childhood obesity.

Our Health in Numbers

Our events take place in Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire and as you can see there is much to do be done in order to improve the health of the North West.

Our Mission is to promote and encourage all adults and children to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle and over the last 12 months, we have created a number of virtual events, some of which you can see below, along with promoting tips and advice on healthy living across all of our digital platforms.


We are hopeful our events, fundraising initiatives and community engagement programmes will start again in the summer BUT we do not want to wait until then to make a difference in our communities, schools and workplace we want YOUR HELP to do it NOW.
