It all started with two friends Jason & Andrew who when the first lockdown hit during the Covid19 pandemic they decided to wear their Spidey suits and use their hourly exercise time to run the streets of Stockport to bring some fun and cheer.
Fast forward to today The Stockport Spider-Men & Friends have a strong team of members who dedicate any spare time to do the same in their communities too. In 2020 we raised £60,000 for the NHS Charities together, went viral all around the world, had awards sent to us by Boris Johnson, The Major of Stockport plus more, featured on numerous TV channels, News broadcasts , Press, Radio and Media coverage as far as China, India and South Africa.
We have now moved on to setting crazy challenges to keep the funding for worthy causes rolling in. Marathons, Ultra Marathons and more will be taken on in 2021 so stay tuned as we are aiming to raise £100,000 for child suicide and mental health awareness charity Papyrus.
