Do you watch the London Marathon each year and feel inspired give it a go yourself? This is the perfect opportunity to tick an item off your bucket list and raise money for a good cause, all in one go!
Now is your last chance to apply to run the London Marathon for JRS UK, on Sunday October 2nd 2022. We’ll be with you every step of the way as you train for the marathon and reach your fundraising target, with the money you raise going straight to accompanying destitute refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.
What Support will I get from JRS UK?
You will receive regular emails from us with fundraising ideas, help with setting up your fundraising page, tips on training and most importantly, encouragement! We will do all that we can to support you both in the run up to the marathon on marathon day itself.
If you feel that you are up for the challenge this amazing experience presents, get in touch with JRS UK by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Where will the money I raise go?
The money you raise will go directly to supporting destitute refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.
JRS UK relies on donations from individuals to support our work with destitute asylum seekers assisting our refugee friends with their basic needs. We provide regular hardship grants to enable people to travel across London to access essential services, to attend immigration, medical and legal appointments, and to buy everyday essential items they may need. We provide a monthly toiletries pack with essential items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, face masks and sanitary towels. Hardship grants and toiletry packs are given to those asylum seekers who do not receive benefits or asylum support. We also offer small grants for educational needs and sometimes assist with exceptional needs.
