On Sunday 19th May 2019, tens of thousands of runners and spectators flocked to Manchester city centre for the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run and we were thrilled to have 17 half marathon and 10k runners, raising funds to support GMYN.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all runners for their hard work and dedication, including half-marathoners: Katie Charlton (GMYN Programme Coordinator), Marcello Cianflone, Sonia D’Andreta, Alison Jordan, Alan Leonard, Chris Rider and Tracy Smith; and 10k-ers: Shanta Aphale, Craig Hopwood, David Hudson, Leanne Shackleton, Mike Spick (GMYN Vice Chair of Trustees), and Mariah Sweeney.

A special shout out goes to Julie Heathcote and Saul Ainsworth from the Oldham Council After Care team and care-leavers Rebaz and Josh, who thoroughly proved that #YoungPeopleCan!
#TeamGMYN have raised over £2000 and we really couldn’t be more grateful!
