Received your own place in the ballot? 

If you have been lucky enough to secure your own place in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020 ballot (released in October 2019), we would love for you to use your own place to run for Haven House. With your own place there is no minimum fundraising target, just raise as much as you can!.

Why choose Haven House?

H – HOLISTIC – We support children and their families, offering a range of services for physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

A – AMBITIOUS – We are always trying to develop more services, build relationships and push the boundaries to provide the best care possible for the children that we support.

V – VITAL – We are a vital lifeline in the local community. Without Haven House, over 900 families would not have received specialist support and care over the last 16 years.

E – EXPERIENCES – Haven House is not just a building, it is a place where we create experiences and make memories that families and children will always remember.

N – NEED SUPPORT – All care provided at Haven House is free of charge to families and we only receive 19% statutory funding. We rely on the local community and people like you to help us reach our fundraising target of £4.2 million in 2019/20.

You will receive:

  • A Welcome Pack with full fundraising support
  • Two pre-Marathon Training Events with running, injury and nutrition specialists
  • A personalised Haven House running vest
  • An invite to our Facebook Group
  • An amazing Haven House cheer squad en route – last year we had a choir!

Join our team of #HavenHouseHeroes and complete our Own Place Form.
