In the Great Manchester 10k run on Sunday 20th May, our fantastic runners managed to raise over £17,000 – an incredible achievement! We are delighted to be able to reinvest this back into the communities of Greater Manchester.

Over 18,000 runners took part in the run, helping to create a party atmosphere around Manchester. Ninety runners took to the street for Forever Manchester in their rather fetching running T-shirts, sponsored by Kay Johmson Gee.

We would like to say a huge thanks to to all the good people at:

Kay Johnson Gee, Moda Living, Express Solicitors (pictured), HSS Hire Oakland House, Hall Brown, HMG Paints and TecCre8. 

In addition, we thank the following individuals who took part in the run for Forever Manchester.

Allison Hardman-Taylor, Aaron McGuire,  Chris Buckley, Chris Marsh, Chris McKenna, Colette Farrugia, Jack Harrison, Jonathan Farrugia, Miki Christie, Olivia Dyson, Richard Hartley and Sam Mikkelsen. 

A very special mention to Ben Gent of Express Solicitors who was the quickest Forever Manchester runner. He completed the 10k run in an exceptional 41 minutes and 37 seconds.

One of our runners, Colette Farrugia, told us: “The whole day was amazing, I’d highly recommend doing it! It was really great to see so many people taking part for Forever Manchester this year, raising money for a charity that does such incredible things for communities across Greater Manchester”

Jack Harrison added: “It was a belting day, the atmosphere around town was ace. Glad we helped raise money for a cause that means a lot to me and many others.”
