Set yourself a challenge, push yourself to the limit, step outside your comfort zone, take that leap of faith… Go that extra mile to raise money for Forever Manchester.

Whether that be running, cycling, walking, climbing, swimming, abseiling, skydiving or any other crazy challenge; going the extra mile for Forever Manchester means that you can raise lots of money through sponsorship.

So whatever challenge you want to set yourself, do it with a bit of style. It’s a truly amazing feeling and even better knowing that your challenge has raised a chunk of money to support the communities where you live, work and play.

For Going The Extra Mile in 2021

This year will be different for so many reasons but one thing that will always remain the same is that the people of Greater Manchester are always up for a challenge, and if that includes raising a bit of cash for Forever Manchester too, then all the better.

This year, why not set yourself a challenge and sign up to one of the many fantastic events happening in your local area. The sponsorship you achieve and the money you raise will mean that Forever Manchester can fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester, keeping it great.
