It may have been the first Monday of January, but there were no signs of that this morning when the UK-Med team got together to launch their first fundraising event.

Liam, Helen, David, Lizzi, Anne-Marie, Freda, Fabrizio and Jak (along with Becky and Holly out of shot) are all so excited to be running the Great Manchester Run for UK-Med on Sunday 19th May.

The team would love others to join them. There’s a 10k or half marathon route so you can pick your distance. Simply visit the Great Runs website to get your own place (leave the charity section blank) and then let us know you’ll be running as part of our team. We’ll help you get set up on JustGiving and get you kitted out with a UK-Med running vest to say thanks for joining us.

The team is raising funds to grow our emergency response fund so we can answer more calls for our help. What better way to stick to those new year’s resolutions to get more active than having a great goal to work towards, knowing you’re raising funds for a great cause? For more information please get in touch with Holly on 0161 278 7589 or email holly.smith@uk-med.org.
