We Love MCR Firewalk

  • St. Peter's Square - Thursday 13th October 2021

50 fearless firewalkers joined us for the most daring challenge the City centre has seen for a long time!

Over £18,000 was raised in the end, making it the most successful self-ran fundraising event in We Love MCR history!

Landmarks of Manchester 10k

In early 2021, Covid-19 restrictions meant it would be a long time before mass-participation events were back. We came up with a solution for anyone who wanted to get fit, have fun, and re-discover the landmarks of our fine city – the "Landmarks of Manchester 10k"!

Participants fell in love with our city all over again, whilst raising funds for our work supporting communities and young people in Manchester. It still remains a great route to embark on as a group or individual...
