Purple Wave fundraising opportunities

Registrations are now open for the Purple Wave in the Great Manchester Run 2019

Did you know that students, staff, alumni and supporters of the University can get free Purple Wave registration? All you need to do is fundraise a minimum of £100 (£50 if you’re a student) for scholarships for local disadvantaged students or students from developing countries, or for breakthroughs in medical research at the University.

Last year runners of the Purple Wave supported our flagship widening participation scheme, Manchester Access Programme (MAP), by fully funding the first ever Purple Wave Undergraduate Access Scholar.

This year, whatever you're passionate about, you can make a real difference by running the Purple Wave. Whether it's helping us find treatments for devastating diseases such as dementia, cancer and heart disease, or giving disadvantaged students the chance to level the playing field and gain a world-class education here, your fundraising will make a real difference to the causes you care about most. Whose life will you help us transform on the 19 May?

To register now please visit the Purple Wave website or for further information please contact purplewave@manchester.ac.uk.
