Manchester Great Run 2019

20th February 2019

Thinking about taking part in the Great Manchester Run this year? Why not consider running for Manchester Central Foodbank and help us to fundraise money that goes directly to helping local people in Manchester!

In 2018 alone our charity distributed over 1400 food parcels, benefiting approximately 2736 vulnerable individuals in Manchester. With an increasing trend of Manchester households living in unstable conditions there continues to be substantial demand for our resources and capacity. That’s why we’re asking you to help fundraise for us so that we can continue providing this service for the most vulnerable in our local community of Manchester.

The Great Manchester 10k is a run for anyone, no matter what your ability level is and we have lots of support available on the day. On the day we can offer you your very own Manchester Central Foodbank running shirt and we will be on site. For students who raise over £50, we will reimburse you half your sign up fee! We’re looking forward to this, and we hope you are too! Plus if you want to push yourself even further the Great Manchester Half Marathon is taking place on the same day!

If this is something you are interested in, email fundraising@manchestercentral.foodbank.org.uk
