KEEN to get in on the latest internet trend, staff from Mary Stevens Hospice in Stourbridge decided to join in with The Running Man Challenge.

Similar to viral dance trends like the Harlem Shake - the Running Man Challenge was popularised by two American university basketball players, Jaylen Brantley and Jared Nickens, from the University of Maryland.

The craze of busting some running man moves to 1990s hit song My Boo by Ghost Town DJs was started by teenagers Kevin Vincent and Jerry Hall and since the first video was posted a few weeks ago people across the world have taken to doing the dance and posting video clips of their routines on social media.

The team at Mary Stevens Hospice in Hagley Road said they couldn’t resist joining in with the internet fun and the chance to showcase the work that goes on at the Stourbridge charity to a wider audience.

Laura Millard, community engagement office for the hospice, said: "It's been impossible not to see these videos going around the world in the last month, and we're always looking at new and different ways we can raise awareness of our work and the people that make this hospice such a special place to be.

“We asked a few of the team if they'd be interested in doing a Running Man Challenge after their shift ended on Monday and the response was a pretty overwhelming yes.

“So we made the video and the reaction from the community so far has been really positive. It's already had more than 3,500 views which is fantastic exposure for the hospice, and it was great fun to make."
