Running cause image

The housing crisis is now a national emergency. We believe that a safe home is a fundamental need and basic moral right. By fundraising for Shelter in the Great Manchester Run 2020 you can join the fight to defend that right.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.

You gave me such a boost! Thankyou all!!
