YMCA Manchester is a part of the largest youth charity in the world
Our YMCA Manchester student, Roman, will be running the BigXmas run at Sale Water Park! Roman is raising funds for the Champions 4 Change (C4C) project which is run by YMCA Manchester. This project supports people who have long-term physical and/or mental health conditions and have been referred to us by a GP/ and or other charities. Our project aims to to establish a physically active and healthier lifestyle and improve participants overall wellbeing.
Manchester YMCA Harriers are taking part in Equinox 24 to raise funds for YMCA Manchester, Youth and Community Service so they can continue to provide mental health service to young people in Greater Manchester.
Equinox24 is a continual 24 hour run in teams around a mixed terrain 10k loop against the clock! The Equinox24 is both physically challenging and mentally tough and the team are taking on the challenge in aid of a great cause!
Please donate to the team in aid of a great cause.
A massive thank you to Ken, Lesley, John, Caroline, Alan, John and Alan for their outstanding efforts in raising funds through the Three Peak Challenge they undertook in aid of YMCA Manchester’s, Youth and Community department.
The challenge raised much needed funds, to further the work of YMCA Manchester Youth and Community department. The funds will enable Y&C to continue providing Mental Health support to some of the most vulnerable young people in Salford and Manchester.

YMCA Sporting Heroes
In the run up to the 2012 Olympic Games the Manchester YMCA decided to celebrate the sporting achievements of its members through an oral history project. This exciting project will work in partnership with local school children, university students and a group of volunteers.
YMCA Manchester was established in 1846 and is one of the oldest YMCA’s in the world. We are affiliated to the wider YMCA England network but act as independent organisation which provides tailored services to communities across Greater Manchester.
Based on Liverpool Road in Castlefield we operate the Y Club and Castlefield Hotel, making us both a social enterprise and a charity. We also provide training and education and health and wellbeing programmes to young people and communities across Manchester and Salford.
We are proud to advocate the needs of the most vulnerable and marginalised young people and are committed to piloting new projects which engage young people and allow them to find their voice within their communities.
How you can get involved
We are asking all event participants to help raise sponsorship for our Inspiring Futures project which works tirelessly to improve the lives of young carers across Salford.
Your donations enable us to keep running all of our services in the local community for children, young people and adults.
