Why Run For Able Child?

Able Child works toward a world in which no child with a disability is left behind. We support a network of organisations in Africa to protect, educate and amplify the voices of children and young people with disabilities, so they are able to thrive. The London Marathon is a fantastic fundraiser for us, with our 2024 runners collectively raising over £60,000! We value each and every marathon runner who chooses to fundraise for Able Child. You’ll receive the following support and resources.

  • Your own branded Able Child running vest.
  • Regular communications from our fundraising team with ideas for events and information about our work.
  • A dedicated contact who will provide you with unlimited support.
  • An Able Child cheering squad on the day.
  • The knowledge that you are supporting an organisation that for 40 years has been making lasting change for children with disabilities in Africa.

Why do you need to fundraise?

Able Child is allocated places by the London Marathon Events company that we use to then fundraise for our work. We also accept international runners and therefore have set pledge levels that are challenging but very achievable in our experience.

Fundraising Pledge (UK): £2,000 (excluding Gift Aid)

Fundraising Pledge (US): $2,500

I felt incredibly supported from the very first e-mail confirming my place running for Able Child. The team at Able Child were in constant contact throughout the process, offering help, encouragement and kind words. I never felt alone. My whole experience was just amazing.
