MISSION AND HISTORY

Miles for Men is a North East charity, based in Hartlepool, which hosts male only fun-runs around the country to raise funds for cancer charities across the UK.

To date we have raised almost £125,000 within 15 months of launching our first event in Hartlepool. This 3 mile (5km) fun-run took take place on the 19th August 2012 with over 1000 male participants raising over £40,000 alone!

​Due to the overwhelming support of men around the country, we now have 5 races setup in Hartlepool, Newcastle, Sunderland, Gateshead and Liverpool!

​The notion of Miles for Men started in April 2012 when Michael Day Jnr was talking about his late father, Michael Day Snr, who sadly lost his battle with throat cancer in 2007 aged 67.

Michael wanted to do something in memory of his father and suggested a sponsored run for men. ​After 5 months of overwhelming support, organisation and many a late night… Miles for Men was born.

One day we’ll all be touched by cancer, whether that be ourselves or a loved one, Miles for Men aim to “Make a Difference” with your help!

£140,000 Raised so Far and Counting!!!
