Event: Run Hackney 2019

Take part in this springtime 13.1 mile run round east London – from Hackney Marshes, past the iconic Hackney Empire and through Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

This run has made it up into the top 10 most well attended half marathons in the UK and has the added bonus of live entertainment along the route, being described as one of the freshest runs around!

Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re the UKs busiest homelessness centre, working in direct contact with vulnerable homeless rough sleepers all year round. Being a local organisation, we don’t have the overheads that others do, and can promise you that 91p in every £1 will be spent on helping homeless people. Running for us means you will be directly supporting the homeless people who need your help most, through our services which enable people to access housing, employment training, and professional support to overcome personal issues.

What difference could you make?

  • £100 could fund 4 full initial assessments for newly homeless people, creating their action plans and giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and GP services
  • £350 could enable a vulnerable homeless rough sleeper to have a course of specialist one-to-one mental health support sessions which will help them to positively cope with their problems and move forward. Considering that approximately two thirds of homeless people living on the streets have mental health problems which are often severely hindering their ability to move on from the streets, that is a massive contribution.

    What support will we give you?
    A high-quality running vest, personalised with your name.
    Advice on training and support to achieve your fundraising target.
    We’ll also be inviting you into our centre so you can see the difference you make first-hand, and so that we can say a massive thank you!
