The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest single fundraising event in the whole world and fundraisers have raised £250million since Virgin Money started sponsoring the marathon in 2010. Last week, 125,000 people were finding out whether they had won a ballot place to the 2015 event.
However, it is not too late to get a place to run the marathon; there are numerous charities with places to give away. So whether you want to run wearing fancy dress, singing karaoke or with a fridge on your back, have a look at our list of charities and see who you could be fundraising for in April.
Don’t forget that Virgin Money Giving are completely not-for-profit, meaning that if you fundraise through us, more money goes to your chosen charity. So once you have your marathon place, don’t forget to open a fundraising page and get started.
And if you need a little extra encouragement to apply for a charity place, we’re giving away a VIP Marathon package to one lucky winner every month from now until March. All you need is one donation on your Virgin Money Giving page for a chance to win. So once you’ve secured your charity place, visit our website to find out more.
