Manchester is rich in sports history. In honour of our Manchester Rising Star’s Fund, which we have already awarded to 76 ambitious young Mancunians, we decided to set a running task which is equal to 76 miles. The person chosen to do this challenge will have to run across Greater Manchester visiting some of the biggest stadiums and sports venues in Greater Manchester, taking a selfie at each location.
*The challenger is encouraged to spread the word about the challenge to their networks, fundraise and encourage people to donate, however, I Love MCR will be promoting the initiative and helping to gather donations.
Terms and conditions
We are Manchester’s Charity. We give heart, hope and opportunity to the people of Manchester, when they need it most.
Our Manchester’s Rising Stars Fund is unique. There is no shortage of ambition and talent in our young people. But for many, their circumstances are what prevents them from fulfilling their ambition.
So we say – if you have a realistic ambition for success, but you haven’t got the Bank of Mum and Dad, tell us what your next step to success is – and we will fund whatever it is that you need to take it.
Ambitious communities across Manchester can apply to our Stronger Communities Fund. We fund projects which improve lives, protect open spaces and reduce loneliness – local community groups can turn to us, to turn their dreams and ambitions into realities.
