Name of Event: Virgin Money London Marathon

Volunteer Role: Team Target Cheer Squad

Join us to cheer on our London Marathon runners and help beat ovarian cancer by raising awareness, funding research and saving lives; we need enthusiastic volunteers to be part of creating the unique atmosphere of 2019’s biggest running event by giving our runners the boost they need to cross the finish line smiling!

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.
