Team photo

Hundreds of Manchester Metropolitan University staff, students and alumni will be showing they’re #McrMetProud as part of Team Orange at the Great Manchester Run on Sunday, 20th May 2018.

Not sure which charity you would like to raise money for as part of Team Orange? Why not choose our Manchester Metropolitan First Generation campaign.

Team Orange are delighted to offer 100 free staff member entries to the Great Manchester Run for colleagues that raise £100 or more for the University’s inspiring First Generation scheme.  

First Generation provides support for young people from Greater Manchester to be the first in their family to go to University.

Getting fit, having fun and making a difference for charity is a big part of the Team Orange #McrMetProud team spirit and every £1,000 raised for First Generation will provide a scholarship and transform the life of a young person in the Greater Manchester area.
