Out Run Homelessness
Join us throughout this summer to run your own marathon over 31 days. With all mass participation events having been cancelled for the next few months, we have a virtual solution for you. Whether you were in the midst of your marathon training or you’ve always dreamt of running one, our Virtual Marathon to Out Run Homelessness is perfect for anyone.
Whether you’ve trained or not, you could run your own Marathon throughout the summer. You can choose your daily or weekly distance in order to complete 26.2 miles within a month. On completion of your marathon, you will receive a certificate from the charity as well as your own virtual medal.
For young people facing homelessness, life was hard enough before the Coronavirus outbreak. Now they are facing worries about food shortages, where to self-isolate and benefit delays. You could help hyh continue to deliver its essential services to those who are homeless by having your friends and family sponsor your virtual marathon. Set up your Virgin Money Giving page at https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/giving/ and you’ll receive hints and tips along the way. Those who raise more than £100 will receive a brand new hyh branded stainless steel water bottle!
Following the Government’s advice, daily exercise on your own or in small household groups is recommended and key to your own physical and mental health. This virtual fundraiser enables you to give yourself a new challenge, set your own targets and also fundraise for local homeless young people.
