We are privileged and extremely grateful to have a wonderful team of Mancunians running the Bupa Great Manchester Run for us this weekend. There are individuals and teams from a range of companies and organisations slipping their running shoes on and putting themselves through pain to raise money.
We wish them all the best and think they are a brilliant bunch. Look out for runners in Super Hero outfits or our distinctive ‘Mustard Splat’ T-shirts. Below is some information on the runners from ABode Manchester.
ABode Manchester has entered a team of runners to take part in this years BUPA Great Manchester Run on May 15th. Tackling the 10K course will be Nick Halliday, ABode’s Managing Director, Ros Young, head of Human Resources, and Christophe Hesbert, General Manager of ABode Manchester along with ABode Manchester employees Laura Morgan, Sean McFall, Mark Rossi, Brian Saucer, Andrea Hamer, Danielle Abdul and Pari Sheikholeslami.
The ABode Manchester team are all running in support of Mustard Tree, the Manchester based charity that works with the homeless across Greater Manchester. Mustard Tree runs a range of projects, all with the aim of providing support and working towards long-term solutions for the homeless. Some projects are focused on improving skills, some on encouraging social interaction and others try to tackle some of the personal root causes.
Says Ros Young, “We wanted to start the year by doing something good for our community and decided to work with a charity that was local and that wants to make a difference to those that they help.”
ABode’s support for the Mustard Tree charity doesn’t just stop at the run. ABode is also devoting time to mentor individuals, provide placements, help serve at the soup kitchen, hold a charity dinner, and set up a clothes box in the staff room to recycle unwanted items.
