Join Team Whizz-Kidz for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon
''One of the best things I've ever done in my life. Fabulous event, fabulous charity. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of it'' Debbie Cook, Whizz-Kidz runner 2017
In the last 20 years we have helped over 9,000 runners reach that finish line and in 2019 we want to support you!
By runing the Virgin Money London Marathon for Whizz-Kidz, you can change the lives of young people with disabilities. With the right wheelchair comes independence and confidence - your fundraising will help our young people like McKenzie acheive this and much more!
We know that training and running the marathon is a big challenge to undertake and our dedicated Events team will be with you every step of the journey, offering you our renowned first class support, honed over years of experience.
