Congratulations to our Manchester team for completing The Great Manchester 10k Run for our Annual Charity of the Year - Become!
Become is a charity for children in care and care leavers. For 30 years they’ve stood shoulder to shoulder with children in care and young care leavers, helping them get the support they need. Whether this be ongoing coaching, advice on everyday situations, supporting the transition from leaving the care system, providing the opportunity to meet other care-experienced young people and share experiences, or just provide a friendly voice at the end of the phone, Become offer an invaluable service to so many people.
As part of our fundraising efforts for Become, some of our Manchester team chose to run The Great Manchester 10k Run. See what some of them had to say about taking on this feat below.
“Having sat in on Alexandra’s presentation on Become, I could instantly see the importance of this charity and how desperately their services are needed. I went straight back to the team and invited them to join me on what has grown to be Team MCR’s biggest fundraising push. Become has some incredible statistic which has shown us just how much we need to bring awareness to their work and we really wanted to help make an impact on that. Being the Manchester office, it made sense for the team to take on one of the city’s biggest run events. We have had an amazing response to our fundraising effort and lots of support for the run.
I am personally, really looking forward to the run. It has been a long time since I have done an event like this and it will be really special to share the achievement with my team. The training is going well and I even went on tour to complete Morecambe Park Run as part of my training.”
“I’m excited to run alongside team MCR and enjoy the day. I will hopefully be running a marathon the weekend before, so going to try and take the run easy on the day and enjoy it. It is for such a worthy cause, having had friends who have been in care. Become do great things for young people, and we want to help them as much as possible in keeping up the amazing work they do!”
“I am really looking forward to Manchester 10K and proud to be running it on behalf of Become with my lovely colleagues. Since having our second daughter last May, I have struggled to find the motivation to get my runners on and pound the pavement; but this opportunity has really given me the boost and drive to make running a part of my life again. Team MCR are looking forward to raising lots of vital funds for Become to support the amazing work they do for looked after children.”
