Shanta on the run!

Shanta is running the Great Manchester Run 2017!

I volunteer as a mentor with Citywise and think they are doing a great job, to raise the aspirations and input into the lives of Greater Manchester’s young people. I am raising money for them so they can continue with their great work.

We’re raising funds for the Citywise ‘Heroes Academy’ summer projects. The money raised at last year’s Great Manchester Run gave 120 young people access to the free holiday club. The play-based curriculum is designed to support their transition from primary to secondary school: learning in disguise as fun! We use the theme of superheroes to help young people discover what it takes to become an everyday hero.  #thecityneedsheroes – could you be one?
