Opportunity: London Marathon Cheer Squad Volunteers

Be part of one of the UK’s biggest sporting events and join Mencap, the Official Charity Partner for 2020, at the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday April 26.

Mencap will have nearly 600 runners fundraising over £2000 each to change the lives of people with a learning disability, with this year’s fundraising going towards our All Move project, bringing together children with and without learning disabilities through sport.

We want to get as many people as possible to support those with a learning disability and be a part of our ‘movement for change’, showcasing how amazing people with learning disability are and raising awareness on this huge world stage. We have 15 runners who have a learning disability taking on the colossal task of running 26.2 mile and it is very important that we give them the support they need to get over the finish line!

It’s an electric atmosphere where huge crowds gather to support the 40,000 people running through the streets of London, and we need you to join us at one of our cheer points to support them.
