On Sunday 20th May, sixteen runners took to the road to make up Team Farleys in the Great Run Manchester 10K.
The race took place on one of the hottest days of the year so far providing difficult conditions for the participants but each one did their best resulting in them showing off some great finishing times. We also entered into the Business Challenge which compared results of businesses of different sizes who had also entered teams and one of our sub teams came in third place in their category!
The runners weren’t just running for themselves however; they had pledged to run in aid of two very worthy charities; The Motor Neurone Disease Association and the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund (run by the British Red Cross).
The Motor Neurone Disease Association was chosen, as a charity close to one of our runner’s hearts, for the vital work they do in funding research into the neurological disease, looking for cures and treatments.
The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund was also an appropriate charity to support around the first anniversary of the Manchester bombing as victims still require funding for treatment and rehabilitation.
As it stands, at the time of writing, our total fundraising amount stands at £1,831.45!
Paul Corrigan, Partner at Farleys and our fastest runner on the day commented;
“It was great to be able to take part in the Manchester 10K and support the Motor Neurone Disease Association and the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. On behalf of Team Farleys I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated and those who came along on the day to show support.”
The run may be over but there’s still time to donate to these causes. If you would like to congratulate the effort put in by Team Farleys and support our chosen charities please follow one of the links below.
