University of Manchester Global Charity Run and MBSAAS Donation to The St John’s Home for Elderly Persons – 19 Sep & 1 Oct 2020

On 19th September 2020, over 240 global participants comprising of students and alumni from The University of Manchester came together in an inaugural University of Manchester Global Charity Run, attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for ‘The most people running/jogging online simultaneously”.

The initiative was organised by The University of Manchester East Asia with many in our South East Asia Alumni Associations (pictured above) supporting the initiative and taking part with enthusiasm.

Spanning across 16 different time zones and 51 cities worldwide, we were glad to see our Manchester community banding together for an important cause.

Thereafter, on 1st October 2020, the Manchester Business School Alumni Association of Singapore (MBSAAS) presented a donation cheque of S$1,500 raised from the Global Charity Run, to its beneficiary, The St John’s Home for Elderly Persons, on behalf of the University of Manchester community in Singapore.
