Manchester High School for Girls

Running for Hannah

In July 2018, one of our former students, Hannah Bharaj, tragically lost her life after a prolonged illness.

Dr Rose Hoban and Mrs Carla Ousey decided that they would like to do something in memory of Hannah and raise money for two charities; an eating disorder charity called BEAT, and the mental health charity MIND. As keen runners, entering a race was the obvious choice, however they didn’t expect was that almost twenty staff, both past and present, together with
friends of Hannah, would join them. Hannah was a super student, intelligent, fun-loving and kind. She touched the hearts of many staff here at Manchester High which is probably why it was so easy for staff to sign up for the runs. Equally, some staff are running who did not know Hannah, but like all of the runners, feel that the two charities are such worthy causes that provide support for conditions that can affect the lives of anyone.

On May 19th, Dr Hoban and Mrs Ousey will be joined by over twenty other runners, of all abilities, for the Greater Manchester 10k race. All incentives to encourage the teams to keep up with their training programmes are welcomed so if you would like to support our causes by making a donation through our JustGiving pages.
