20-strong team to run Manchester 10k for Find A Better Way

A 20-strong team will take to the streets of Manchester to raise funds for Find A Better Way.

The runners will be sent on their way with good wishes from Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton, the founder of the Cheshire based landmines research charity.

Sir Bobby will wish the team well as they prepare to run the Manchester 10k on Sunday, 18 May.

The Manchester run is Britain’s most popular 10k race, attracting international class runners, fun runners and thousands of charity fund raisers.

The Find A Better Way team is made up of staff and supporters of the charity including a strong contingent from researchers at Manchester University who are working with the charity.

Humanitarian teams around the world work hard to detect and destroy landmines. But detection equipment is antiquated and innovative solutions are needed to make a significant difference to a problem which leads to thousands of deaths and stops communities from using land for agriculture and economic growth.

Alongside landmine research, Find A Better Way funds projects to educate people about landmine safety in former war zones and to provide innovative humanitarian solutions for victims of landmines.

Fundraising for the charity will help to save lives and help communities across the globe. To make a donation please go to www.findabetterway.org.uk/d0nate.
