2019 Winner and Finalists


Declan has raised almost £20,000 for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Charity.

The majority of this money has been raised through "Declan's Decathlon" which involved 10 events Declan created, varying from a sponsored walk round the Etihad Stadium to a #ScarSelfie challenge. 

The last of the events in Declan's Decathlon was the Great Manchester Run 10K on 19th May 2019. He turned 16 shortly before the event and was able to run the 10K for the very first time. This was also RMCH's 10th birthday year, so it was a 10K, his 10th event in the 10th year of RMCH.

Well done Declan, you should be so proud!
