Not only will you have one of the most amazing days of your life, but your support can help to change the lives of some of the poorest people around the world. From developing long term solutions to hunger and poverty, to delivering emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, your support will help those who need it most.

Help Her Live, Learn and Earn

Money you raise before 22nd April will be DOUBLED by the UK government as part of CARE’s Help Her Live Learn and Earn campaign.

So your £1,700 will become £3,400!

By taking part in the Virgin London Marathon 2018 in CARE's team, you will support CARE International, to help women and girls to break the cycle of poverty – because when one woman works her way out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Any sponsorship donations received from UK residents until the 22 April 2018 will be doubled by the UK government, up to a total of £5 million, as part of CARE International’s Help Her Live, Learn and Earn campaign. Donations will help to fund CARE’s vital work with women and girls in some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.

The match funding will go towards a new project helping women and girls in a remote and poor area of Tanzania to grow enough food to feed their families and earn a living. This project will not go ahead without your help, so thank you in advance for any support you are able to give.
