Manchester's Amazing Race

02 February 2007

Manchester United, Coronation Street, The Birth Place of Daniel Craig and The BUPA Great Manchester Run 2007 are just some of Manchester's great events. The Children's Society has secured a limited number of the much sought after places in one of Britain's fastest growing and most loved 10km races The BUPA Great Manchester Run 2007.

Places for this race, which takes place on Sunday 20 May 2007, are like tickets for any Manchester event – scarce and in great demand. Whether you are an athlete wanting to beat a personal best or a fun runner taking on a challenge, anyone aged 15 years and over can enter. Secure your place by running for The Children’s Society and raise money to help the charity safeguard and protect childhood.

The Children's Society is only able to continue its work through the generous donations of our supporters and volunteers. This allows us to concentrate our work where the need is greatest and not just in areas where government funding is available. So don’t lose your place and be a star for children.

Claire Hall, Fundraising Events Manager, said: “The Children's Society believes that every child has a right to a good childhood, but we know that thousands of children are denied this. Secure your place in the BUPA Great Manchester Run and with your help we can continue to work with children to stop their childhoods being taken away. When childhoods are stolen, we give them back”.
