Abuse changes childhoods. But so can we. Join our Virgin Money London Marathon team and help us fight for every childhood.

Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we're there. Together we can rebuild children's lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.

How you'll make a difference

"I just wanted to let you know, that I phoned them on the same day you came into our school. I phoned because I was getting bullied and they really helped me."
