‘Make a difference to children’s lives’: NSPCC urges Mancunians to lace up for BUPA Great Manchester Run

By Sam Ruffe

Children’s charity NSPCC is calling on Mancunians to help vulnerable children by lacing up their running shoes for the BUPA Great Manchester Run.

Taking place on May 25 the event is the largest 10k event in the North West and the NSPCC team has a number of charity spots available.

Deborah Sefton, NSPCC community fundraising manager for Manchester said all runners representing the charity will receive first class training and support.

“The NSPCC has a number of guaranteed places on offer for the Great Manchester Run and we’d love to welcome you to our team,” she said.

“With the electric atmosphere of 40,000 other runners, the event promises to be one to remember, so sign up today and make you place count for vulnerable children across the region.”     

NSPCC charity spaces are available on a first come first served basis with a registration fee of £20 and a minimum sponsorship of £200 required.

Each runner willing to take up the challenge will be given a fundraising pack, running vest, expert training and fundraising advice.

And aside from receiving valuable support on the day, Deborah highlighted that participants will also run knowing they are helping a worthy cause.

“Money raised by all our runners will help protect vulnerable children across Manchester and the UK,” she added.

“We couldn’t continue to provide our services, which are a lifeline to many children, without the support of events like this.

“So why not be part of something amazing and sign up today to help make a difference to children’s lives.”
