Standard Chartered Great City Race to raise funds for new initiative

The Standard Chartered Great City Race will take place on 16 July 2019, and this year £10 from each entry fee will be donated to Futuremakers, a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion for young people in a number of global communities.  

Everyone deserves the opportunity to realise their potential, yet globally, more than 200 million young people are out of work or live in low-income poverty. Through the Futuremakers by Standard Chartered programmes, we can make a difference in promoting economic inclusion and empowering our next generation to learn, earn and grow.  The programmes enable disadvantaged young people to learn new skills and improve their chances of getting a job or starting their own business, and include financial education training.  

All money raised for Futuremakers from this year’s event will go towards education, employability and entrepreneurship programmes for disadvantaged young people around the world.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at this years’ event and raising funds for such great causes.
