Hear from Richard, who ran for Team Whizz-Kidz in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2016 and 2017
"I just want to say a huge thank you for all the support, help and encouragement that you have given me during my second London Marathon running for Whizz-Kidz. From the training days, to the emails, to the Expo, to the cheer points, to the post-race reception it has all been brilliant. I find Whizz-Kidz such an inspiring charity and everyone I have met during my time with you has been so kind and supportive".
Combine your London Marathon place with our other running challenges
You can upgrade your London Marathon place and combine with our other running challenges. We have places available in The Royal Parks Half Marathon, The Great North Run, The Edinburgh Half and The Bournemouth Half.
Why support Whizz-Kidz?
Your support will help Whizz-Kidz reach the thousands of disabled children and young people in the UK waiting for mobility equipment that fits their young lives.
Whizz-Kidz sets disabled young people free to reach their true potential and live their lives to the full. The money you raise could go towards the cost of providing a disabled child’s powered chair – the ultimate gift to transforming their life, and future, overnight.
