you all!

Run, walk, cycle, swim

Whatever your activity, we’re hugely grateful for the support!

We encourage all of our supporters wishing to run the London Marathon to enter the ballot, which is usually a week or two after the marathon in April. Anyone who raises more than £150 will receive a free running t-shirt or vest!
