Take on the Run Home Challenge to support those rough sleeping!
Every year The Connection at St Martin’s supports over 2,600 people on their journey away from homelessness.
During the pandemic as we are staying in our homes more than ever, there are many people who do not have a home. At The Connection, we are supporting hundreds of rough sleepers into temporary accommodation, and making sure they get what they need to stay safe and well.
That’s why we’re asking you to take on the run home for challenge. Set yourself a running challenge – whether it’s 30km in 30 days, 5 miles every day for a week or running for an hour non-stop- and fundraise to help support those experiencing homelessness.
Sign up and you’ll receive support one to one support from the fundraising team, a certificate upon completion. We will also send a running vest if £100 fundraising is reached (subject to delays).
Take on the #runhome challenge today and run home for those experiencing homelessness.

What Impact will you be making?
The people that we work with, particularly people sleeping rough, often have long-term conditions and poor physical health which means that they are at a greater risk should they become ill. For those without a home, it is also very difficult to self-isolate.
During this time, we have been working around the clock to help secure suitable accommodation for rough sleepers to help them to self-isolate and stay safe and well. So far, over 350 people in Westminster have been helped into hotels.
Your support will help us continue to provide medicines, food, other essential supplies plus virtual support to those who need us.
If you have any questions, please call Adele on 0207 766 5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
