After a lifetime of being inactive and avoiding physical exertion as much as possible, I graduated from Middleton Harriers couch to 5k scheme in 2018. I expected to maybe get round the 5k route in my own time but I did not expect to love to run and to now be aiming for The Manchester Half Marathon on 13th Oct 2019. I decided as this would be such an achievement for me I would use the opportunity to help Manchester’s homeless by raising money for Tackle4Mcr.
Tackle4MCR is a combined effort of Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, to address rough sleeping and homelessness on the streets of our city-region.
Tackle4MCR will catalyse, promote, organise and manage fundraising initiatives following a considered approach spanning the full length of Vincent Kompany’s testimonial l season, for the benefit of the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund
