Event: London Triathlon

The AJ Bell London Triathlon is the world’s largest triathlon and London’s only major triathlon in 2017. Attracting over 13,000 participants and 30,000 spectators each year, this iconic event has become a must do event in the sporting calendar. With a variety of distances, routes and wave categories to choose from it doesn’t matter whether you’ve never done a triathlon before or are an Olympic champion – we’ve had them all!

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 other’s do, and can promise you that 93p 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 support will we give you?
We’ll be sending you a high-quality running vest, personalised with your name.
We can also help with 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!

Any questions? Please call us on 0207 766 5555 to speak to Sonja, or email events@cstm.org.uk.

What difference will you be making?
By raising £300 for our services, you could enable 4 newly homeless people to have a full initial assessment, creating their action plans and giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and GP services, and also enable us to carry out 2 hours of Outreach work. On these shifts, our Outreach teams (which include mental health professionals, substance misuse advisors, and ex-homeless people) will make contact with vulnerable rough sleepers out on the streets, to check on their wellbeing and work to gain their trust, hoping to persuade them that there is a future for them and that we can help. This is often a long process as individuals work through the issues which led to them sleeping on the streets and any issues which may have arisen from their time on the streets. However, your contribution will help more people to turn their lives around.
