As part of our Wellbeing Champions programme, pro-manchester are delighted to be collaborating with our good friends at Freshwalks.
If you are not familiar with Freshwalks, please do take a minute to check them out here. They organise wonderful walking events to help you feel and perform better – in life and in business. It does this in five ways: through an enhanced state of mental performance and wellbeing, improved physical fitness, collaboration with others, knowledge sharing and growing your network.
We'll meet outside Atlas Bar on the corner of Deansgate and Whitworth St West, before venturing out of the city along the Bridgewater Canal. We plan to leace the canal at Throstle's Nest Footbridge and will cross Trafford Road in order to return to the city via The Salford Trail along the banks of the Irwell. The walk should take a little over an hour at a decent pace and we'll start at precisely 12pm. At the end of the walk, we invite you to join your newly made contacts for some optional lunch at Atlas Bar. Pre-orders will be requested via email about a week before the event. The walk should end around 1.15pm and the lunch event around 2pm.
