Great Manchester Run fundraiser

Great Manchester Run fundraiser

We have 36+ runners taking on the Great Manchester Run to fundraise for us in May.


A brilliant number of staff members from two of our sponsor organisations are taking part for us.

Avecto have 9 runners taking part. You can donate to their effort here.

CDL have 25 people running for us. You can donate to their effort on this page.

We also have Social Work student Jo Donegan, who worked with us between August 2016 and January 2017, running for us as a parting gift. You can donate to Jo here.

Janine Murphy is taking part for us too. She has a family member who has experienced some of the work we do locally, so she wanted to contribute to our fundraising pot by taking part in this run for us. Her fundraising page is here


If you would like to join the Stockport Mind horde, please let us know!

The event is on Sunday 28th May 2017, you can choose which distance you’d like to run (10k or half marathon distances available), and participants are set off in waves through Manchester city centre with crowds cheering you on.

If you want to run for us, all you need to do is sign up to the event itself hereThen you can create a fundraising page on Just Giving or another similar site, choose the event and us as your charity. You can then spread the word and start collecting online donations from people.

You could even team up with friends, neighbours or work colleagues and get a group of you going!

If you do decide to sign up and run for us, please let us know on Facebook or Twitter or by emailing so we can say thanks, share your fundraising pages and hear how you get on. We will also have a team of supporters there on the day to cheer on all the runners!


10k is 6.2 miles and a half marathon is 13.1 miles.
