Miles for MRI

Callum and Laura cycling

Miles for MRI is a fitness challenge with a competitive edge.

In 2022, the Trust conducted 34,221 MRI scans. Converted to steps, this huge number of scans equates to 17 miles.

MY Hospitals Charity is asking people to consider walking or running 17 miles over the course of a single day, week or month, gaining sponsorship to raise funds. Families with small children or less mobile people are encouraged to walk or run 1.7 miles.

Miles for MRI is a great motivation to get people out walking or running and being more active. You can take part on your own, as a family, a sports team or school class!
