Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Manchester 24 Hour Run Against Homelessness is a relay run consisting of 5KM laps, raising money for the Greater Manchester Mayor's Charity in support of the Bed Every Night Scheme.
The relay starts at 12:00 on Wednesday 13th November and will finish at 12:00 on Thursday 14th November.
A Bed Every night provides a bed, warm welcome, and personal support for anyone who is sleeping rough or at imminent risk of sleeping rough in Greater Manchester.
The laps will be completed in groups, running at a comfortable pace for everyone present. The laps start from outside the University of Manchester Students' Union and venture into the city centre. Each runner can take part in as many laps as they want, and we aim to start 1 lap within each 30-minute window.
We want as many people as possible to take part for the cause and are looking for partners for the event!
If your running club is interested in taking part, please send us a message! We are looking for clubs / organisations to have their own relay waves during the 24-Hour event. We can even mark it as your wave on the sign-up form!
