Team MFT Blue Wave 2024

The Team MFT ‘NHS Blue Wave’ is returning this year at the Great Manchester Run on Sunday 26 May.

The event brings you together with colleagues from across MFT to have fun and improve your health and wellbeing as part of the biggest 10k in the UK.

Supporting your health and wellbeing is a key focus for us, so we want as many of you as possible to get involved, hitting the streets of Manchester to celebrate the unity of #TeamMFT.

This event truly is for everyone, whether you’d rather run, jog, walk or use a wheelchair. It’s all about taking part, building up some team spirit, and celebrating the NHS.

Thanks to our MFT staff lotteries, we have again secured a reduced registration fee of £23 (usually £44). Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive a Team MFT t-shirt along with loads of support and encouragement from our team.

Anyone who joins Team MFT, is most welcome to fundraise for their chosen hospital within our MFT Family. Should you wish to fundraise, the MFT Charity Team are here to support you.

Contact toby.tyler@mft.nhs.uk for more information.
