The team at Park Inn by Radisson Manchester City Centre took on the challenge of running, walking or crawling (for some!) 252km in aid of Forever Manchester.

Each km represented every bedroom in the hotel. 26 members of the team – and our own Events Co-ordinator Craig Hough – got involved and knocked up a total of 355.55km in 48 hours and raised over £500.

Meggan Shearsmith, Front Office Manchester says, “It was great to see in such a big team effort from management through to front line staff. Everyone has been involved – if not taking part physically then supporting and sponsoring those that have. It’s been for a great cause and I know I certainly have the blisters to show the effort!”

The superstar of the challenge was waiter Maciej Debal who achieved the highest distance – 12km in one hour and the hotel received a star visit from BBC TV Sports Presenter Dan Walker who wanted to show his support for the fundraising initiative.

Everyone at FM HQ says a great big thank you – we hope there weren’t too many sore legs and bums!
