Virgin London Marathon places available with street children's charity
Milton Keynes based children’s charity Toybox has 5 places available to runners who would like to sign up to fundraise for their place.
Toybox is a charity dedicated to supporting the lives of street children across the globe, with a UK based team in Bletchley fundraising and supporting projects overseas.
Lynne Morris, CEO at Toybox explains more about the charity: “Toybox supports street children who have no choice but to live or work on the streets of most of the dangerous cities in the world; like San Salvador in El Salvador where gangs control vast areas of the city and use street children as young as 4 years old to carry messages and drugs, if they refuse they can be killed. For over 25 years now Toybox has been raising money to help get children off the streets and back into school, if this is impossible Toybox provides emergency support, like medical care, providing sleeping packs, a hot meal and more.”
Don’t miss out on a once in a lifetime chance to run the world-famous route, taking in some of the most famous London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, The Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf.
8 months, 3 weeks and 3 days of training to go! If you have already applied for a ballot place, these are due to be allocated 8th Feb, if you don’t receive a place, why not apply for a charity marathon place with Toybox?

The Toybox Charity
Toybox started working in Guatemala City in 1992, and is still there today, working with children who have been plunged into the chaos of living or working on the streets. From working in one country, with one partner, the organisation is working in seven countries with eight partners.
The charity is committed to ending the global injustice of children living and working on the city streets. It helps children marginalised and abused by those who should protect them and works with local organisations who are best placed to help find the most appropriate ways to prevent and help children escape from a life on the streets. Toybox works in El Salvador, Bolivia, Guatemala, India, Nepal, Sierra Leone and Kenya.
