Fundraise for us by taking part in a challenge event

From representing us at the London Marathon to organising small local challenge events, every single person who breaks a sweat to support our work makes a difference.

WithYou challenge events

We have charity places available for certain challenges and races. This means that if you want to support us, you can sign up at a reduced price, as long as you are able to fundraise the required amount.

Take a look below to join team WithYou and represent us at one of these big events!

The London Marathon

We offer charity places for the London Marathon each year.

Please get in touch if you would like to participate in the 2025 race by emailing fundraising@wearewithyou.org.uk.

Organise your own challenge

Some of our supporters participate in other well-known challenge events, including the London Landmarks Half Marathon, the Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh Half Marathons, the Great North Run and many more.

While we do not currently have charity places for these, we are grateful to our supporters who organise their own participation and champion our cause.  

Top tips and how to get started: 

  1. Challenge yourself to a run, walk, swim, or skydive, all in the name of supporting people affected by substance use and mental health. 

  2. Set up a JustGiving page and set yourself a target - aim high and really push yourself!

  3. If you need a helping hand with how to go about fundraising, you will find tips and advice in our [fundraising pack](link to pdf file) which will help you to get started.
