Name of Event: Virgin Money Half-Marathon

Volunteer Role: Side line support at the Virgin Money London Marathon is vital in providing moral support to the runners to help get them to the finish line and raise as much money as they can for Shelter! Volunteering at the London Marathon means that you’ll get the chance to be an ambassador for Shelter, your presence will be vital in boosting the recognition of the charity to make sure people know who we are and how we can help. On the day you’ll receive a free Shelter T-shirt to help you stand out from the crowd (and you may even spot a few famous faces as several celebrities are running this year) 

By joining Shelter’s volunteer team, you will help to raise money for those facing bad housing and homelessness by supporting our team of 230 runners.

Our runners always comment on how fantastic and motivational it is to be cheered by Shelter cheerers around the course - so your support is hugely important and greatly appreciated!
