Warrington Collegiate tutors prepare for marathon challenge in aid of Make-a-Wish Foundation

Two kind-hearted members of staff at Warrington Collegiate will be pulling on their running shoes in May when they take on a marathon of a challenge for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Keen runners Hannah Swift, Senior Tutor in Construction and Engineering, and Andy Williams, Head of Faculty for Health & Social Care, Childcare, Public Services and Sport, will take on the Brathay Windermere Marathon on Sunday 22nd May in aid of the charity.

Make-a-Wish Foundation exists for one reason – to grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

Since being established in the UK in 1986, the charity has granted more than 10,000 wishes, including sending children on holidays of a lifetime, arranging for them to meet their favourite celebrities and providing children and young people with life-changing medical equipment.

Hannah, who recently took part in the Liverpool Half Marathon, said: “It’s absolutely heart-breaking to think what these poor children and their families are going through but the Make-a-Wish Foundation goes above and beyond to give them a magical experience.

“By raising as much money as we possibly can, Andy and I could make a seriously ill child’s dreams come true.”
