Free entry if you raise money for First Generation

First Generation is the University’s campaign to provide a complete student journey of support for young people from families with no history of higher education from Greater Manchester. Charity runners who raise at least £100 via our JustGiving page for the First Generation campaign can reclaim the cost of their entry fee!
