Hope for Children (HOPE) is a small UK based children’s charity that helps disadvantaged children receive the childhoods that they deserve.
Over the past 21 years, HOPE has had thousands of incredible runners join Team HOPE to take on challenges on behalf of their cause. These range from 10k runs to marathons including the Virgin Money London Marathon, and ultras such as the Marathon des Sables.
In the past year, Team HOPE’s efforts have helped the charity reach over 44,000 children and their families in seven different countries whilst building a real presence in the running community. With just 5 places in next year’s Marathon des Sables remaining and 2 places in the Jungle Ultra also available, it is clear that Team HOPE are willing to push themselves to their limits in aid of their favourite charity.
Why are people choosing to run for HOPE?
“HOPE are a great charity who are very supportive! The Events team contacted me both before and after the event. I also felt that they were there if I needed any more help, and it is brilliant that they keep you updated through regular newsletters.”– Amy Brocklehurst
“HOPE are not only making a difference, but you feel that what you do for them is channelled directly into helping make that difference. I get a true sense of gratitude from the charity.” – Danny Slay
Hope for Children has a wide range of running events for you to get involved with, and if none of those take your fancy you can always choose your own event and set yourself a fundraising target. Even £50 can make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children when running with HOPE!
