Healthy Bodies, Healthy Club: The FC Minithon 2010

The third annual FC International Minithon will be held on Sunday October 17th in leafy Chorlton Meadows in Chorlton. The "Run Walk or Crawl" 5k fun event will be followed by entertainment and refreshments in Chorlton Irish Club. All supporters who can walk or run a couple of miles are urged to participate.

The main purpose of the event is to raise funds for FC United and our new children’s hospital charity, Frost Foundation. The event, which last year raised £13,000, will be administered by Forever Manchester and is being very kindly sponsored by The Co-op.

This year we are looking to have 200 supporters participating in Manchester, London, Boston USA and Sydney. Rochdale Hornets will once more be challenging as will Merthyr Tydfil who will stage their own event in Wales.

Those supporters who wish to assist with staging the event or the social should contact sponsorship@fc-utd.co.uk .

Any members can be involved in the planning, participation and delivery of the events: We need walkers, joggers, runners and racers, fundraisers and sandwich makers, stewards and singers, comedians and physicians, actors and dog walkers, event managers and graphic designers, chefs and refs.

Prizes will be once again available for best fancy dress, best headgear, fastest dog and owner, fastest runners etc.
