Event: Broadgate Tower Run Up

On Saturday 20th July you will have the opportunity to claim the 35 floors, 877 steps of The Broadgate Tower in The City of London to raise money for homeless people. Stair climbing is a fast growing sport that is already mainstream across The United States and Asia, but still in its infancy in the UK and as such provides a perfect platform to wow your friends and family and boost your fundraising efforts. This year we are offering new family climb options and for those of you after an extra challenge there are multiple climb options available.

1. Single climb – Take on the 877 steps, 35 floors of Broadgate Tower for a unique challenge experience. (minimum fundraising target of £150)

2. Choose our ¼ of a vertical mile challenge, and take on the tower 3 times. (minimum fundraising target of £200)

3. The real endurance athlete can choose to tackle The Broadgate Tower 12 times to complete over a vertical mile of climbing. (minimum fundraising target of £300)

4. Parent + Child (8-15 years old) Single Climb (Registration fee £40, minimum fundraising target of £150)

5. Family (Max 2 adults + 2 children 8-15 years old) Single Climb (Registration fee £80, minimum fundraising target of £300)

Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re one of London’s busiest homelessness centres, 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 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!

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.
