Great Manchester Run places
Runners have been urged to sign up to a charity 10k and raise sponsorship money for a local charity.
The Sutton-based Rossendale Trust, which provides care and support for adults with learning and physical disabilities, has places left in the Great Manchester Run. Anyone, from elite athletes, to first-time distance runners is invited to go the distance for the trust.
Funds raised will be used for the WorkTaste programme — which supports individuals with a learning disability to take part in the world of work. Trained WorkTaste coaches accompany people on work placements, giving as much support or as little as needed.
Sue Heaven, the trust’s head of fundraising, said: “Giving vulnerable adults a real taste of work is a team effort and we need your help! Join our team of runners to help us to ensure the continuation of the project — get in touch, make a difference and complete an epic run in Manchester.”
