Feeling motivated? Join our 2017 London Marathon team and help us fight for every childhood. 

Make sure you enter and if you’re lucky enough to get a place then we’d love you to join our team as an own place runner. 

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.
