fuel the change for the future of tomorrow

Taking place on Sunday 10th October 2021, this years Manchester Marathon is set to be bigger and better than ever. 

There’s many reasons people are so eager to take parts in events like this; the opportunity to push themselves to a new PB, a swanky medal, getting it ticked off the bucket list, or maybe you just get a thrill from gruelling body torture… regardless, we’re here to give you one more, and this is the big one that will top the rest. 

By running for Manchester Youth Zone and committing to raise our minimum fundraising target of £300, you will not only have the full support of our fundraising team behind you to help you hit (or even surpass) that target, you’ll also be ensuring that some of the cities most vulnerable young people have a safe space that they can come to outside of school hours, meet positive role models, have access to free, nutritious meals, and ultimately be able to lead healthier, happier lives. 

To put it in to context, £300 could ignite the spark that creates the next Jeff Bezos in our Careers and Enterprise Hub, provide 6 families with food boxes to see them through the school holidays, put a young person at risk of child criminal exploitation through our Juniors Choices programme – a 10-week course aiming to change the path of a young person’s life forever. 

So, do you think you have what it takes? To partner with MYZ and make sure that just as much as you are pushing through your own boundaries to succeed in the race, you are also helping many young people push through theirs and succeed in life. 

To sign up, simply email Kirsty.Peters@Manchesteryz.org
