Cash for Kids Challenge

Cash for Kids is supported by the I Love MCR Foundation and championed at the I Love MCR Power Awards

Who are we

Hits Radio Cash for Kids is a grant-giving charity helping the children that need it most across Greater Manchester.

Our mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in our local community who are affected by poverty, illness, neglect or have additional needs. They believe that all children should be able to express their individuality, achieve their potential and live life to the full.

What we fund

We work with grassroots organisations that aim to make a difference to young lives, directly supporting families who often have nowhere else to go.

Our vision

In 2021, they gave a helping hand to 45,552 children in Greater Manchester and, as a small team of three, they rely on the support of local businesses, schools and individuals to make this possible.

The challenge

The Manchester Stair Climb Challenge

To be completed: 15/08 – 28/08

The architecture of Manchester demonstrates a rich variety of architectural styles. The city is a product of the Industrial Revolution and is known as the first modern, industrial city.  

Did you also know that 1 in 3 children in Greater Manchester are sadly living in poverty?

We want to help disadvantaged children in Greater Manchester who are affected by poverty so we are looking for someone willing to limb all the stairs of 9 of the tallest buildings in Manchester. You will need to walk up 3 buildings a day over a 3 day period.
