Sunday 22 April 2018 (All day)

Name of Event: Virgin Money London Marathon 2018 

Volunteer Role: What we need- The Virgin Money Marathon is one of the biggest events in the running calendar, and a day when our amazing runners and supporters come together to raise awareness, fund research and save lives. 

What your time will mean- 11 women die every day from ovarian cancer, and ovarian cancer faces chronic underfunding compared with other cancers.  Together we can make sure women in the UK have the best chances of survival; you can give our runners the extra boost they need to get them over the finishing line or help them celebrate at our post-race reception, and know that your time will help transform diagnosis, treatment and support for the more than 25,000 women in the UK who are living with ovarian cancer.

What you’ll get out of it - You’ll be at one of two official #TeamTarget cheer points along the London Marathon route – you’ll be with other volunteers, supporters and Target Ovarian Cancer staff, will get a t-shirt, cheering materials, and an invite to our post-race reception to meet our amazing team of runners and help celebrate their success.  You’ll get all the information you need before the day and have a dedicated volunteer contact on the day.

When: Sunday 22 April 2018, 

We need volunteers from 10.30 at our cheer points, and 13:00 for our post-race reception. Please let us know the shifts you’re able to commit to (choose all that apply):

  • 10.30 – 14:00
  • 11.30 – 15:00
  • 13:00 – 16:00
  • 16:00 – 19:00

Where: Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge (cheer points) and Charing Cross (reception)

Roles will be based between Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge (cheer points) and Charing Cross (reception). We need the most volunteers at our cheer points and will allocate roles between the locations once we know how many volunteers we have, but please let us know if you have a preference
