Join Oasis UK's 2018 London Marathon team
Oasis UK - a nationwide charity with its headquarters in Kennington Road - are putting together their London Marathon 2018 team of runners. The London Marathon is generally very over-subscribed: many more people apply to run in it than are allocated a place on the starting line. By joining Oasis UK's team, and pledging to hand their sponsors' funds over to Oasis UK, runners can be sure of a place and to be part of a team training for the same run whilst helping an important and worthwhile charity.
The London Marathon 2018 takes place on Sun 22 April. The event has raised millions of pounds for charity since it was launched in 1981: £380 million, to be exact. The amounts raised have been rising steadily: the 2017 London Marathon raised £59.4 million for good causes.
Runners pledging to run for Oasis UK will know that their sponsors' donations support work with vulnerable young children and families across the UK. Oasis UK works closely with communities in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country, delivering services that help provide safer and brighter futures to families and individuals in difficult situations, living difficult lives.
To join Team Oasis UK, runners must aim for a fundraising target of £1,700, be aged over 18 and pay a £50 registration fee.
