A message from the Vegan Society offering some great opportunities to run and swim while raising money – email [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] for details!
Keep fit and raise funds
We have reserved spaces for you to enter many of the big races this year. The first two to kick things off are the Great Manchester Run in May and the Great North Swim in June.
Set yourself a fitness goal for the summer, and help raise funds for The Vegan Society to carry on its amazing work. All you need to do is raise £200 in sponsorship for either race – in return we would feature you online, and hope to get local media coverage of the events.
