Join Team Orange and run for free with First Generation

Show you're #McrMetProud in the Great Manchester Run

Team Orange are delighted to offer 100 free staff member entries to the Great Manchester Run for colleagues that raise £100 or more for the University’s inspiring First Generation campaign.

First Generation tackles the full range of challenges that young people who are the first generation of their family to go to university may face. The campaign provides the necessary support and encouragement to help them come to university and then additional financial, personal and professional support throughout their studies.

Getting fit, having fun and making a difference for charity is a big part of the Team Orange #McrMetProud team spirit and every £1,000 raised for First Generation will provide a scholarship and transform the life of a young person in the Greater Manchester area.

Signing up as a First Generation charity runner is easy:

If you are part of Team Orange and you are running for your chosen charity, link your own fundraising efforts to our #McrMetProud Great Manchester Run page and let’s celebrate the success together!
